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.

Misc. Comments

In instrumentation section, mentions a string quintet but also mentions not having less than 8 first violins.

quintet: that is, 2 violin sections, viola section, cello section, bass section. Does not! mean only one of each, in an orchestral context.
