Misc. Notes The first edition can be found as part of the Revisionsbericht of the Breitkopf & Härtel Gesamtausgabe here (p.4-8). The basis for the text here is the first edition, although a few divergent readings in the copyist's manuscript suppressed in the first edition were drawn to the editor's attention by the critical commentary to the Henle Urtext edition.

Misc. Comments

This is probably the otherwise missing second movement from the Piano Sonata in F minor, D.625.

This work was also transposed to E major and shortened to serve as an introduction to the Rondo in E major, D.506 by Diabelli in his 1848 edition of the latter work. That introduction contains b.1-15 of Schubert's original (slightly altered and transposed to E major) followed by a passage somewhat similar to b.44-49 of Schubert's original (but greatly altered and transposed to B major).
