Carl Czerny in Vienna - between 1801 and 1802

from Recollections from My Life, pages 306-307:

I played the great C-major concerto by Mozart (the one that starts with chords). Beethoven soon took notice, moved close to my chair, and played the orchestral melody with his left hand whenever I had purely accompanying passages.
