String Quartet (Kortchmariov, Klimenty)
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.

This original manuscript (710 measures) was found by the uploader in Kostia Konstantinoff's archives. It bears the composer's (self-spelled Clement Kortchmarioff) unmistakable handwriting, together with his corrections in ink and glued on strips of paper. The score was stamped under n°206 by a music library which may be that of Kiev (to be confirmed). It is undated. The composer's Latin spelling is sometimes erratic, apart from his own name, his set of variations should read : Variations sur un thème juif
