Navigation etc.

Though Galuppi lived until 1785 and could have intended this for piano, Grove Music doesn't mention a single piece for piano as such. The works listed are for cembalo or "keyboard". In fact, there are no cello sonatas listed either, so it could also be an arrangement from an as yet unidentified keyboard or harpsichord sonata.

Originally it seems a keyboard solo sonata (perhaps the one multi-movement sonata RaaG 35, or perhaps a combining of several one-movement sonatas).
