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 1996 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.

(Definitive Fassung) (Revised Version)

The revision took place in two stages. In August Hindemith composed a seventh movement, which could by played ad libitum after the sixth. He premiered this seventh-movement version on 22 September 1930 in Graz with the Städtisches Orchester Graz, conducted by Oswald Kabasta. By the time the score was published in October 1930, he had decided on the following definitive order of movements: the original first three movements, followed by the original fifth movement (with a slightly altered ending) and the new (initially seventh) seventh movement from August of that year. The original fourth and sixth movements were dropped. The first performance traceable to the conclusive five-movement version probably took place on 27 November 1930 at the Berlin Krolloper with Otto Klemperer conducting and Hindemith as sobist. Occasionally referred to in older secondary literature and contemporary programs as Hindemith's second viola concerto.
