In that period there was an unusually keen interest in the Orpheus legend- and so it is not surprising to learn that all three movements ...

were undeclaredly--or better described, secretly--based on that famous story. So begins Owen Janders Beethovens Orpheus Concerto: The Fourth Piano Concerto in its Cultural Context. In this fascinating and controversial book, the author maintains--echoing the interpretation first suggested by Adolph Berhard Marx in 1859--that the three movements are based on the Classical versions of the Orpheus legend by Vergil and Ovid.

Jander tells us the full story--from the opening phrase of the first movement to the last measure of the finale--of how the Orpheus legend informs every note of Beethovens music.
