3 Poèmes Juifs (Bloch, Ernest)

It is very unlikely that this work is public domain in the EU, or in any country where the copyright term is life-plus-70 years. However, it is in the public domain in Canada (where IMSLP is hosted) and other countries where the term is life-plus-50 years (such as China, Japan, Korea and many others worldwide). As this work was first published before 1923 or failed to meet notice or renewal requirements to secure statutory copyright with no "restoration" under the GATT amendments, it is very likely to be public domain in the USA as well.

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.

Edition no. is from back of "Study Scores" edition, Schoenberg Quartet no.4, mid-1940s or later reprint (since it lists works composed then), in my possession (I am assuming this may be one of those?)

Misc. Comments

The Cortège funèbre written possibly in memory of his father who died in 1913.

Also, performed in Boston in March 1917 with the composer conducting. Not sure whether this was the US premiere, the world premiere or just the Boston premiere, but it may well have been the world premiere... (of course, if one were to go by MusicSalesClassical one would believe the world premiere had been as recently as 2008. Unless they mean "World Premiere of an Urtext Version" or something like that, erm, ... well, as it was performed in 1917 and recorded in the 1960s if not earlier, -- no.)
