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.

The song as it stands in its original form is a fragment. It has been completed by Reinhard van Hoorickx (1918-1997), who composed performing versions for many of Schubert's unfinished songs. The sketch has no text, and Hoorickx assigned to the work the poem "Lebenstraum", written by Gabriele von Baumberg (1766-1839), and first published in 1805. Hoorickx's completion has been recorded by Stephen Varcoe and Graham Johnson for the Hyperion label. There is also an instrumental version of the fragment for cello and piano that was recorded by Daniel Grosgurin and Ulrich Eisenlohr for the Naxos label.
