It is probably his most outstanding work. He began it in and the first performance took place in Moscow on 12 May , the composer as soloist under Koussevitsky. The horrible events of the First World War are, perhaps unavoidably, reflected in the work. Russian and German cultures meant equally much to Medtner and the war between the two countries developed into a personal tragedy for him.
The Concerto is a grandiose, one-movement construction, written in sonata form, where the extended development of each section compensates for the lack of the traditional division into movements. Slow and scherzo-like episodes sound almost like the middle movement of a symphony and the coda, which is thematically and dynamically rich, serves as a finale. The work opens with four introductory exclamations anticipating the appearance of the main theme, full of heroic yet tragic pathos. The development is very unusual: it consists of a theme and a cycle of variations.
Here the composer develops fragments of all the main themes of the Concerto with considerable polyphonic skill. The short recapitulation is extremely dynamic, and the coda presents the last climax of the Concerto. Medtner somewhat delays the outcome by leading the themes through a number of odd modulations and unusual harmonies: only at the very end do we hear a triumphant hymn in C major, followed by three final bell-like ringing strokes on the piano. The composer himself regarded it as the synthesis or summary of all his work and, indeed, worked on it throughout his life.
This work, which was destined to be his last, combines freshness of inspiration with great mastery of composition. Again, the structure of the Quintet is unusual. The first movement expresses what can only be described as a theme of Hope and Faith.
It opens with a large introduction in which the epic theme flows broadly and solemnly. The new subject in the central section reminds one of the famous medieval tune Dies irae.

The comments may be irrelevant or outdated; if so, please feel free to remove this section. This is an assessment of article Ignaz Moscheles by a member of the Composers project, according to its assessment criteria. This review was done by Magicpiano. If an article is well-cited, the reviewer is assuming that the article reflects reasonably current scholarship, and deficiencies in the historical record that are documented in a particular area will be appropriately scored. If insufficient inline citations are present, the reviewer will assume that deficiencies in that area may be cured, and that area may be scored down.
If there are special catalogs e. If the composer has written more than works, any exhaustive listing should be placed in a separate article. Note that since many 20th-century works are copyrighted, it may not be possible to acquire more than brief fair use samples of those works, but efforts should be made to do so. If an article is of high enough quality, do its images and media comply with image use policy and non-free content policy?
Adherence to these is needed for Good Article or Featured Article consideration, and is apparently a common reason for nominations being quick-failed. Does it contain sufficient inline citations? For an article to pass Good Article nomination, every paragraph possibly excepting those in the lead, and every direct quotation, should have at least one footnote. If appropriate, does it include Further Reading or Bibliography beyond the cited references?

We get a pretty good picture of his personal and professional life, but only a very superficial treatment of his composing. It is hard to tell when he started, what his major works either most popular or most musicologically important are, when they were written, how they were received, and so on. I acknowledge that he was likely better known for his other activities; however, the above described material is not really mentioned at all, and it should be.
The article's sources are also troubling: there is no real third-party material presented as a reference; see Alma problem for an example of why this is a problem.
