The Piano Sonata No. 3 in E major D. 459 is a work for solo piano, composed by Franz Schubert in 1816. It was first published in 1843, after the composer's death, by Carl August Klemm in Leipzig. Unusual for piano sonatas of this time period, the sonata is in five movements. Because of this, the first publisher named the work Fünf Klavierstücke.
Andrea Lindmayr-Brandl has noted that Klemm had compiled the movements for his 1843 publication of this work from a number of different Schubert compositions. Furthermore, she notes the "fragmentary" nature of the work, because Schubert had broken off the sonata at the close of its development section.
- I. Allegro moderato : E major : with particular form like Mozart (recapitulation in the subdominant)
- II. Scherzo : E major
- III. Adagio : C major
- IV. Scherzo con trio : A major
- V. Allegro patetico : E major
Daniel Coren has summarised the nature of the recapitulation in the fourth movement of this sonata.
