Cello Sonata No.3, H.340 (Martinů, Bohuslav)

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

  • Claves.ch gives the premiere date as 8 January 1953 (noting that the reason it was held in Washington rather than in Czechoslovakia was that, according to František Smetana, "the first performance of the Third Sonata was nearly prohibited by the Czech Composers Society; who condemned its cosmopolitan author (an insult at the time)") ; Hyperion Records gives the date as late 1952.
