It is 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 (like 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, 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.

These files are part of the Orchestra Parts Project.
* The parts marked with a star are optional parts to allow the work to be performed with fewer winds; specifically without Flute 3, Oboe 2, and the Bass clarinet.
† Several parts are missing from the set: the optional part for the English horn when there is no Oboe 2; and both Harp parts.
