If you can play tchaikovsky's concerto then the easiest Beethoven concerto should be no problem at all. ;\)

It's not bad. You need clean scales and the ability to voice chords well.

And ditto to above, if you've played the Tchaikovsky concerto, then Beethoven 1 will be a walk in the park.

Actually if you re-read that post I said that I had struggled through the first movement. SOrry if I didn't make myself clear on that.

Well, just pull it out and read through it a bit. As for advice, it's pretty straightforward - listen well, play cleanly, pedal sparingly, the usual classical stuff...
