Piano Concerto (Boyle, George Frederick)

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

  • New York Times mentioned a performance in that city in the issue of February 9, 1912, performed by the Philharmonic Society, the composer conducting, Ernest Hutcheson at the keyboard.
  • MS score and parts (of this, his cello concerto (1917), piano concertino, and orchestral aubade also) are at the Fleisher Collection of the Free Library of Philadelphia.
  • According to Hyperion program notes, the printed version is a slightly revised one: at least the end of the 1st movement is different from that in the full score.
