Work comment

This is a variant of Overture in F minor for full orchestra. It comprises only the slow mesto section, but seems to be in and of itself a complete work, since it ends on the tonic F minor (not on the dominant C major chord, as the orchestra version does), and is marked with "Fine" after the last double bars.
