It is 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 (like 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, it is very likely to be public domain in the USA as well.

Misc. Comments

There is also a version for chamber orchestra (which from the looks of the scrunched in score on the page, for instance- this is not.) and one for voice and piano is also mentioned as authentic at ernestbloch.org (so is included among tags- Schissel). apparently alto rather than baritone may be used, so that also is being included among alternatives. (Comment on piece: not so unusual for 1914, but final chord arpeggiated in last measures and then held, is not a triad, but a stacked fifth chord D-A-E with E in violas, oboes etc. Still, interesting, I think...-Schissel)
