"Beethoven's autographs of the first three piano concertos opp. 15, 19 and 37 are the earliest of all orchestral scores which have survived integrally. Thanks to source studies, we know today that a first version of the Concerto in Bb major op. 19 had already originated in Bonn in 1790 at the latest. It was followed by a second version written in Vienna most likely in 1793 which included the Rondo in Bb major WoO 6 as finale. A third version followed most probably in 1794 and led to the fourth and final version, written in Prague in October 1798, as Beethoven sojourned there at the beginning of the concert season." (from the Preface)
This autograph together with the autograph solo part which was made at the beginning of 1801 and the parts printed in the same year, are the main sources of the present edition.
