Piano Sonata, Op.30 (Medtner, Nikolay)

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.

URTEXT EDITION 
This "urtext" or "scholarly" (scientific) edition was published at least 25 years ago in the EU (or 20 years ago in Italy, before 1992 in the former USSR). Hence, the edition is public domain in its country of origin or a government publication. Such editions are also public domain in Canada because they fail to meet the minimum 'threshold of originality' to qualify for copyright as an 'adaptation'. They may not be public domain elsewhere. More information about this can be found here.

Misc. Comments

two slightly different editions, 1917 and 1922, appeared during the composer's lifetime; see Medtner.org.uk.

From Prokofiev's diaries, apparently after hearing the composer perform this: "excessively Medtnerish with nothing particularly new in it, but good all the same and I would like to play it myself." ("Sergey Prokofiev diaries, 1915-1923: behind the mask", Page 96.)
