Hey guys, a few days ago my teacher recommended me these four piano concerti, and I canít really decide, which one I should choose. What would be your recommendations, which one is technically/musically harder etc.?
1) Beethoven 1st Piano Concerto in C Major
2) Gershwin Rhapsody in Blue
3) Mendelssohn 1st Piano Concerto in G minor
4) Mozart E flat Major Piano Concerto KV449

I'd say Gershwin and Mendelssohn are the most difficult, but it depends on your strengths/weaknesses.

Are you looking to play the technically/musically hardest or easiest one? :P

Mendelssohn is super cool and can be quite the challenge! Good luck!
