A one-movement concerto, it is the shortest of his five complete piano concertos, lasting only around a quarter of an hour.
The first and last sections have a clear thematic relationship, as the concerto begins and ends with the same spacious D-flat major theme. The middle section (G-sharp minor) is darker but hardly less glorious than the other two, its climax abysmal rather than overbearing.
Prokofiev dedicated his first piano concerto to the "dreaded Tcherepnin".
