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.

The composer writes at the end of the first movement that 9 minutes might be expected (Dauer des 1. Teiles 9 Minuten) and 16 minutes for the 2nd movement (which encompasses slow movement and finale.) So 25 minutes is a predicted length for the score.
A 1907 biographical article notes that the premiere was on February 6 1905 with the composer's sister, noted and "temperamentvolle" Carola Mikorey, at the piano, in Dessau. (Monographien moderner musiker, p.175, Kahnt, 1907.)
