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

  • Erster Teil
Rejected continuation of the second piece (to follow bar 26) reproduced in appendix of SW V/9. Second half of No.2 used in final scene of act 2 of the 1926 Cardillac. Hindemith adapted the third piece for mechanical (Welte) piano.
