Not only is "D major" only the key of the middle movement- from which one can guess nothing about the key of the whole (it's also the key of one of the alternate sections of Mozart's later C minor fantasy, for instance- the key of the whole work might be anything) - from the looks of things it's not quite clear whether:

  1. fantaisie is the title of the work or of the 2nd movement;
  2. this is a work for guitar, arranged for guitar, or a guitar part of a work for larger ensemble (or for guitar and accompaniment) though the first two seem the more likely choices, and as Jos. Raab in HMB in the 1830s wrote (e.g. his opus 12) works with guitar parts (with piano and one or two other instruments) this would at least be consistent with Raab's being that Raab (though it would suggest that this in turn was probably also - first - published in the 1830s or before...) - Schissel
