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.

Misc. Notes:

The piece was written for Fitzenhagen, and the dedicatee took it upon himself to make changes to the original score (which was not revived until the 1940s). Until fairly recently, this Fitzenhagen version was the only one known in the west.
