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.

Eusebius Mandyczewski (1857-1929)
Publisher. Info. Franz Schubert's Werke, Serie XIX, No.27 (pp.85-86)
Leipzig: Breitkopf & Härtel, 1892. Plate F.S. 292-293.
Reprinted New York: Kalmus, No.1067, n.d.
Misc. Notes Breitkopf & Härtel published two versions of the piece, but this is erroneous. The work, as listed in Deutsch, is in two parts ("Kanon in zwei Teilen"), not two versions. The first part ("A") is in A major while the 2nd part ("B") is in F-sharp minor. From a structural standpoint, the work is in ternary form ("ABA"), as shown in the Neue Schubert-Ausgabe score.
