Abstract

Franz Peter Schubert (1797-1828) began composition of the Sonata in C Major, D. 840 (“Reliquie”) during April of 1825. It was first published in Leipzig in 1861 and dubbed the “Reliquie” by the publisher K.F. Whistling, based on the mistaken assumption that it was Schubert’s last piano sonata. Following the complete Moderato and Andante movements, Schubert left the Minuetto: Allegretto and Rondo: Allegro movements unfinished. The primary purpose of this treatise is to compare and contrast the published completions of the unfinished Minuetto: Allegretto and Rondo: Allegro movements as finished by Ludwig Stark, Ernst Krenek, Walter Rehberg, Harold Truscott, Armin Knab, Paul Badura-Skoda, Dieter Einfeldt, Noël Lee, Martino Tirimo, Geoffrey Poole and Brian Newbould.
