This "urtext" or "scholarly" (scientific) edition was published at least 25 years ago in the EU (or 20 years ago in Italy, before 1997 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 From the uploader's library. This edition is based on a manuscript in the Berlin Royal Library but the editor points out the work was published by J.W. von Wasielewski in his Instrumentalsätze vom Ende des XVI. bis XVII. Jahrhunderts (Berlin, first edition 1874).

  • See WorldCat for a partial? or complete (or almost-complete) recording of op.2 and some information (from 2003/2004, by parnassi musici, on cpo. Note that each piece has a descriptive title. Received a very favorable review in Fanfare Magazine at the time for music and performance.) Several partial recordings also.
