The sonata is incomplete, consisting of only a single movement, and even that was abandoned by the composer before completion. Other hands, such as Howard Ferguson, Noël Lee, and Martino Tirimo, have attempted to realise Schubert's assumed intentions. These hypothetical completions of the sonata have been drawn from such separately published pieces as the piece (usually assumed to be an Andante) in A major, D. 604, and the Allegro vivace in D major and Allegro in F-sharp minor, D. 570.
I. Allegro moderato
F-sharp minor. Fragment (breaks off at the end of the development, implying a recapitulation in the subdominant, B minor)
(II. D. 604)
(III. Scherzo: Allegro vivace - Trio, D. 570)
(IV. Allegro, D. 570)
F-sharp minor. Fragment (breaks off at the end of the development)
