I allow the Orchestra to make the first moves. Theme 1 is slow and lyrical and played by high woodwinds, then repeated by lower woodwinds. The theme is then heard in the strings, first in the major, then in the minor key. Only then, does the Piano enter, to join in with the orchestra rather than dominate it, in a repeat of theme 1, first in the major key, then in the minor.
The Piano then 'takes over' with a short, brisk motif that leads to the solo Piano playing a variation of theme 1. The woodwind then enter with the second theme, followed by the Piano doing the same thing.
After both Piano and orchestra play theme 3, the piece returns to theme 1 , before the movement closes.
I do hope that you enjoy this first movement, the 2nd and 3rd will follow.
