This "urtext" or "scholarly" (scientific) edition was published at least 25 years ago in the EU (or 20 years ago in Italy, before 1996 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.

Misc. Notes The piano part for this edition is only useable with the C major bass part if the bass player is tuned up a minor third to rarely used high-solo tuning (G-C-f-b) or if a different bass part that has been transcribed to D major is used and the bassist tunes a half-step higher to F-A-D-G.
