Navigation etc.

Work key and mode is speaking generally the key of the "opening allegro" (Allegro moderato) of the first sonata-form movement, which starts 32 bars into the first movement and is F major here- 31 bars of F minor "presto-adagio" introduction notwithstanding. Unless there is a title page on which the composer writes F minor, or some other reason to trump the usual rule (Mendelssohn's 5th symphony in D major is a good example of this and about that one there seems to be some ongoing controversy...)
