  1. Allegro
  2. Adagio
  3. Allegretto

A typical performance takes about 18 minutes.

There is an accompanying violin part of doubtful origin in many 1800 editions; the piano part is exactly the same as for piano solo. Neue Mozart Ausgabe (NMA) hold it as an addition by either André or another. Description at Mozarteum.
