Misc. Comments

The Adagio introduction does not belong to the Rondo proper and was probably inserted by Diabelli. It is a transposed and abridged version of Schubert's original (D.505), which was intended to be the second movement of the Piano Sonata in F minor, D.625. This would suggest a composition date for the Adagio of September 1818, along with the remainder of the F minor sonata.

The Rondo has been variously suggested to be the fourth movement of the Piano Sonata in E minor, D.566, or to be the third movement and finale of another sonata (the first movement being the third of the 3 KlavierstĂĽcke D.459A and the second movement being the Adagio in C major D.349. The former suggestion would give a probable dating of June 1817; the latter would give a dating sometime in 1816 (perhaps August?).
