String Quartet, Op.21 (Jarecki, Tadeusz)

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

Jarecki was awarded the Coolidge Prize in 1918 for this string quartet. This is probably the first of his three string quartets but I cannot verify that.

(PDF from August 28 1918 reporting this though not reporting much additional detail - some biography.-Schissel See also Review by Daniel Gregory Mason (rather negative!) of the premiere and the festival of which it was part of the closing concert.
