Even if sonata form isn't important though

The statement that the best movement of the symphony/concerto is the first movement is not a particularly controversial statement. After all you want to make the best impression immediately as first impression counts. It's like how the opening track of a rock album is the most important as if you stuff it up you could taint what follows
It's just so happen that the first movement is almost always in sonata form. It's the form used to make an immediate dramatic impact on the audience which says something about the inherent nature of the form and I don't think the great first movement and sonata form structure is a coincidental or merely a correlation relationship but a causal relationship with that trend
