String Quartet No.8, Op.18 (Toch, Ernst)
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.

- as there seems to be little of D♭ major about this quartet until the end of the finale, however, I am inserting the correct (going by any typical 'rules' I think I know) key of C♯ minor. The numbering of Toch's quartets presents even more of a problem- the first five or so are lost (this editor hopes not forever), but the composer-approved numbering starts with number 6 for the quartet in A opus 12 and goes from there to the quartet no.13 opus 74 (a very fine work I think- I own two recordings- but neither PD-US/CA/EU until 2015, so...)(further note: Violin I part has appasionato, Violin II, Viola, Cello have appassionato.) - Schissel
