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

Revised often before publication according to Jessie Henderson Kennedy Matthay's "The Life and Works of Tobias Matthay" (Boosey&Hawkes, 1945).

A manuscript reduced (2-pianos) score ("appears to be a working copy") of what is probably the same work at RAM (Royal Academy of Music catalog) has the date ca.1895, so an early version was finished then.

Note that an even earlier concert-piece in 2-piano reduction and full score from 1881 in D minor is in the RAM library.
