URTEXT EDITION 

This is an urtext/critical/scholarly/scientific edition (or a simple re-engraving). Any commentary or critical apparatus, if protected by copyright, should not be included in the scan(s) available here. This edition was published by Bärenreiter in Germany over 25 years ago and is in the public domain in its country of origin.

In Canada, new editions/re-engravings of public domain works (when not including new original material) should be in the public domain due to failing to meet the threshold of originality. In most European Union countries, these editions (except new original material) are generally protected for no more than 25 years from publication (30 years in Poland). In the United States, copyright can only apply to new creative work, and the re-engraving of a public domain piece (not including new additions of creative material) should not qualify for a new copyright, despite copyright claims (which properly would only apply to new material).

You may need to check the publication date and details of the work's first publication in order to determine the work's copyright status, especially for the United States.

"basso" in the classical period was generally a synonym for cello, or at least for non-solo cello. See the title pages of Mozart's and Haydn's earlier string quartets, for example, which are generally agreed to be for 2 violins, viola and cello but where the title page most certainly specifies "basso" as well.

Correction: the part was taken, according to Leopold Mozart (see the preface to the NMA edition), by Cassl (Joseph Thomas Cassel), court double-bassist, at an early performance, so- double-bass, not cello and not open bass. (From a letter of 13 April 1778 of Leopold Mozart to his son, quoted in the preface to NMA edition 167.)
