URTEXT EDITION 
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. More information about this can be found here.
Please obey the copyright laws of your country. IMSLP does not assume any sort of legal responsibility or liability for the consequences of downloading files that are not in the public domain in your country.

Misc. Notes This is an all B-flat part for the first movement which can be used in lieu of the published version. Layout identical to Universal edition for these pages. Since the published version switches back and forth between B-flat and A for both Clarinet 3 and Bass Clarinet, and since not all orchestras/players these days have a Bass clarinet in A, this file is provided to make life easier for players who can't deal with transposing back and forth on the fly in their heads.

Misc. Comments

Violin I soloist tunes 'scordatura' a whole tone up to AEbf in Movement II.

Was this concluded in 1900 or 1901? Wikipedia has 1899–1901 I think but I don't know what definitive sources give...- Schissel
