URTEXT EDITION 
This "urtext" or "scholarly" (scientific) edition was published at least 25 years ago in the EU (or 20 years ago in Italy, before 1992 in the former USSR). Hence, the edition is public domain in its country of origin or a government publication. Such editions are also public domain in Canada because they fail to meet the minimum 'threshold of originality' to qualify for copyright as an 'adaptation'. They may not be public domain elsewhere. More information about this can be found here.
Please obey the copyright laws of your country. IMSLP does not assume any sort of legal responsibility or liability for the consequences of downloading files that are not in the public domain in your country.

Misc. Comments

Although the works were composed in London, JC Bach's visit to the electoral court at Mannheim in 1772 explains the dedication. S.Sadie's edition is based on the original London edition but variants in other contemporary versions are said to have been considered. The works can be performed as quintets without keyboard support.

Sadie's editions have a figured bass. Does this mean that the original London edition also has figures in the bass part? Or should everything above (except the Sieber ca.1774 publication) be treated as arrangements?

"Announced in the Public Advertiser in 1774" - notes to the il Gardellino recording of Op.11 No.3. Not published until 1776 though?? - ES
