Aria (Ibert, Jacques)

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.

Misc. Comments

This piece, a "vocalise-étude" and subtitled "aria", was originally written in 1930 for medium voice and piano. Similarly to Ravel's work by the same name (en forme de habañera), the vocal range and style lent itself well to instruments, and several arrangements and transcriptions were subsequently produced under the composer's hand as well as that of others. Of these, the most popular remain the arrangements for flute and piano, and for alto saxophone and piano. The majority were produced and published between 1931-32. While the vocal original is seldom heard in concert or on recording, the myriad instrumental arrangements are commonplace in the studio and on the recital stage.
