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.

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), and only if the edition is published after the copyrights of the original creator(s) have expired. 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, as the copyright on the original work may not have expired.

Misc. Notes This file is part of the Sibley Mirroring Project. Note that this contains an error in the cello part: on page 8, two lines from the bottom, there are 6 bars rest followed by 4 bars of Eb (taken from the horn part) - then there should be a bar's rest, which is missing - then a bar with two Fs. In the score, this is bar 380 in the Ernst Eulenburg edition (page 163) - which numbers movements 2/3 together - or bar 298 in the Breitkopf & Härtel parts.
