The piano part to Kalkbrenner's Piano Concerto No. 4 in A-flat major, Op. 127, with orchestral cues throughout. (The wrapper and title page incorrectly read "Op. 125.")
At the height of his career, Kalkbrenner was considered the best pianist in Europe. His only real rival was Johann Nepomunk Hummel.
