||This work was left incomplete at Tchaikovsky's death. While originally intended as the second and third movements of his Piano Concerto No.3, the composer extracted the first movement as a separate work. Sergey Taneyev reconstructed the remaining two movements from the composer's sketches and published both the full score and reduction for two pianos in 1897 with M.P. Belaieff.|
The piano part was later embelished by Sergey Taneyev (first performance of this version: 1898-10-29 - Moscow; first publication: 1948 Moscow: Muzyka (in vol.62 of Pyotr Tchaikovsky: Complete Collected Works, p.137–202). Plate M. 19604 Г.)
