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.

  • The attribution to Händel described as "doubtful" over at Allmusic.com - no.4 of a set of 6 trio sonatas that, according to Burney, were discovered by Hugh Hume, earl of Marchmont, during a visit to Germany in the 1720s-30s (according to the notes to the Hyperion recording of the sonatas - which continue that following the lead of the "German scholar Hugo Leichtentritt in the 1920s, many authorities simply could not accept that they were the work of a ten- or eleven- year old") - etc.
  • Grove Music, though listing this in the "Doubtful and spurious" category, says the original instrumentation was oboe, violin, and continuo. Therefore tagged for both possibilities.
