URTEXT EDITION 
This “urtext” or “scholarly” (scientific) edition was published at least 25 years ago in Germany and thus is public domain in its country of origin. 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’. It may not be public domain elsewhere, however. 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. Notes scan: score scanned at 600dpi
filter: score filtered with 2-point algorithm explained in High Quality Scanning
I provide the original scanned version and the filtered, because the filter does some changes (smoothening, sharpening borders) and some portions of the scan get lost sometimes (when they are too small e.g.) - so you can choose your favorite. You may ask me for a manually cleaned version.

Misc. Comments

Appears in the 1982 NMA, NMA IX/27/2, pp. 35–36. Discussed briefly in the preface, page XVI, of the same. This says of the autograph, from Barbara Ployer's Stammbuch, that it was lost in 1945. (As his Piano Concerto No.17 in G major was also written for her, K453a is considered something of an- appendix?...) (According to one forum post :), the title arises because Mozart was the dedicatee's music theory/counterpoint teacher.)

(However, with the return recently of some Mozart autographs that were not destroyed but instead taken as war spoils in World War II this last claim ("lost") may be subject to revision as with other works, according at least to recent news reports.)
