Misc. Comments

For the 1st version of the sonata, the Neue Schubert-Ausgabe published an alternative version of the 1st movement (Fassung der ersten Satzes nach der ersten Niederschrift). The Finale is a fragment, as the last page of the autograph, probably containing 17 bars, is lost. Its contents may be reconstructed from the parallel passages in the exposition and (for the coda) the 2nd version of the sonata. It is possible that the Scherzo in D-flat major (D.593/2), also composed in 1817, was originally conceived as the 3rd movement of the Sonata.

The 1st version is numbered as Piano Sonata No.7 in both Classical Archives and the Wiener Urtext Edition; it is unnumbered in the Breitkopf & Härtel edition. The 2nd version is numbered as Piano Sonata No.7 in the Breitkopf & Härtel edition, and as Piano Sonata No.8 in the Wiener Urtext Edition; it is unnumbered in Classical Archives.
