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. Comments

This may be the duet also known as (and recorded as) "scherzo" and also composed in 1934? (There is a recording with the composer as violist, and more recent ones.)

Composed between 5:00 a.m. and 8:20 a.m. on the day of the first performance in order to fill an empty side of a 78-rpm set.
