Misc. Notes:

Color scan. This is the first edition of the full score and does not contain Debussy's revisions of orchestration. It therefore does not exactly match the contents of the orchestral parts available at IMSLP. Recordings usually use the revised orchestration.

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. Notes:

These files are part of the Orchestra Parts Project. String parts engraved, others are produced from copyist's manuscript. These parts correspond to Debussy's revised orchestration and do not at times (e.g. wind scoring at the start of Fetes) match the contents of the first-edition full scores at IMSLP.
