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

Based on a poem by T. E. Ellis = Thomas Evelyn Scott-Ellis (1880 - 1946); each section of each movement has headings from this source.

(The 36-minute version recorded on Hyperion is the 1923 revision, not the 1902?/1906-1908 original.)

Program note to the first performance refers to the concerto as a symphonic poem.

(One of at least six? concertos by the composer- a piano concerto no.2 Op.100 "the Orient", a 3rd piano concerto "Dance Symphony", a violin concerto "The Grasshopper", a double concerto Tamerlane (Op.119) for clarinet and bassoon, a quadruple concerto, a cello concerto "Cambrian" (Op.103), and a bassoon (or saxophone) concerto, followed.)
