Navigation etc.

Published by the Neue Schubert-Ausgabe as a work for piano solo, but the instrumentation is uncertain. A Deutsch number will be assigned after a new revision of the Deutsch Catalogue, around 2027.

The work as it stands in its original form is a fragment. It has been completed by Reinhard van Hoorickx (1918-1997), who composed performing versions for many of Schubert's unfinished works. In his completion, Hoorickx converts the theme of the G major minuet (No.2) into a Trio, effectively creating a single work (Minuet and Trio), instead of 2 minuets.
