One of four Keyboard Sonatas (G, D, C, Bfl) edited by F.W. Rusts grandson Wilhelm Rust (1822-92) and published in 1891. The edition by Wilhelm Rust is almost a new composition. Rust partly recomposed the original and added two movements of his own composition (Wehklage and Menuett). Wilhelm Rust claimed his grandfather to be a forerunner of romanticism. See file #489143 (manuscript from Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin) for the original and Wikipedia-article about Friedrich Wilhelm Rust.
