In 1841, he wrote his Phantasie, a fantasy for piano and orchestra and then added the intermezzo and finale to expand it into a full piano concerto.
Schumann Piano Concerto was premiered in 1846 in Leipzig. Schumann’s pianist wife Clara played the solo part and Ferdinand Hiller conducted it. The work employed a single powerful orchestral chord in the beginning and then a descending flourish takes one to piano’s entrance. The concerto is scored for two oboes, two flutes, two horns, two bassoons, two clarinets, two trumpets, strings, timpani and a piano. The work completes in three movements, an A minor Allegro affettuoso, an F major Intermezzo: Andantino grazioso and an A major Allegro vivace.
