The finale, among all movements of the whole sonata, borrowed the most musical and structural ideas from the works of Beethoven. It could be found out from a lot of music material that both of them are likely to adopt “Rondo: Allegretto – Presto”. Charles Rosen thought him has surpassed Beethoven, especially in the elaborated coda. According to the observations made by Charles Rosen typical Sonata forms are characterized by clearly defined independent periods. There is high dependence on the traditional baroque forms that needs to be discarded in the sonata forms. This is to essentially escape from the horror vacui.
The main theme breaks off in silence and then harmonized in unexpected keys. It was interrupted later by repeating the theme. Several virtuosic bars in the finale remind audiences of the opening movement, generating cyclical unity for the sonata.
As to the belief that some works of Schubert are unnecessarily long, D959 is one of the examples. Playing the whole D959 with all repeats, it will last for more than 35 minutes and may be too long to some ears. Many pianists chose to play the sonatas without some repeats. For example, Kempff plays the first movement of D959 without repeat at all. ‘It seems that some repeat signs were inserted by Schubert as a matter of convention and it is possible that in certain cases he may not have objected to their omission.’
To summarize the works of Schubert, it has been found that he was heavily influenced by the works of Beethoven. This was seen evident in the early works by the composer. However in the later times there has been a definitive transition from the early times to the newer times. He was able to grasp the ideologies of Beethoven and make compositions in part to that of Beethoven. This has been efficiently showcased in the three sonatas in D959. These compositions show that Andantino underlying theme that has been characterized by a melancholic middle part that starts and finishes with the fast tempo. The narrative theme elucidated by the composer has been effectively seen in all of the works of the author.
