    I don't know the piece well enough to say, but can help you figure it out until someone posts something more helpful!

    If it's in binary form there are only two sections which both have repeat marks at the end, with the first probably cadencing in the dominant and the second moving it back to tonic. It's not likely a concerto 1st movt. would be in binary form.

    It's only ternary form if the last of the three sections is exactly the same as the first (which usually closes in the tonic)

    It's most probably actually sonata form if it's a first movement. If it has a good tune and a grotesquely soppy (or at least more lyric) second tune in the first section of the piece (second theme being in dominant) then sonata form is a good bet.

    Somebody who actually knows the piece well can help more, I've only heard it once.

    Probably world's most boring and long-winded post, but I'm very lonely!
