Studie über den Walzer Op.64 Nr.1 von F. Chopin (Rosenthal, Moriz)

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

  • A study in double notes (primarily thirds) on Chopin's Minute Waltz. Rosenthal, known for his astounding double notes, once heard a colleague play this arrangement at a concert and, afterwards, went up to the pianist and thanked him "for the most enjoyable quarter of an hour of my life". A very cleverly worded insult!
