Jahrmarkt bei London (Klenau, Paul von)

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.

See page 2 for the composer's program for this work (given in both German and English).

(Note on orchestration)

*Note: indication “Gr. Trommel mit Becken” (pp. 39–43) suggests that perhaps these should be played by one musician, with the cymbal attached to the bass drum, thus requiring one fewer percussionist.
