Misc. Notes
This "urtext" or "scholarly" (scientific) edition is in the public domain because it was published at least 25 years ago for most of the EU (20 years ago in Italy, 30 years ago in Poland) over 25 years ago for the former USSR. 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.

Extra Information After Tchaikovsky's death, Sergey Taneyev found the composer's sketches for this piano piece, which he completed and published under the title Impromptu (Momento lirico). However, Taneyev was unaware that Tchaikovsky had completed the piece in 1892, and that it had already been published by Urbanek in Prague under its original title of Moment lyrique.
