Symphonic Dances (Hindemith, Paul)

This work is likely not in the public domain in the US (due to first publication with the required notice after 1922, plus renewal or "restoration" under the GATT/TRIPS amendments), nor in the EU and those countries where the copyright term is life+70 years. However, it is public domain in Canada (where IMSLP is hosted) and in other countries (China, Japan, S. Korea) where the copyright term is life+50 years.

Copyright
Misc. Notes This score I believe is a first edition and that the score printing is based on I assume the composers handwriting style and that the score is a mini score, which makes it impossible to scan to cite out every detail based on the type of musical font used and how small all the writing is in the score. I hope there will be another more recent edition, that is a computerized and more higher quality of printing for scanning purposes.

URTEXT EDITION 
This "urtext" or "scholarly" (scientific) edition was published at least 25 years ago in the EU (or 20 years ago in Italy, before 1992 in the former USSR). Hence, the edition is public domain in its country of origin or a government publication. Such editions are also public domain in Canada because they fail to meet the minimum 'threshold of originality' to qualify for copyright as an 'adaptation'. They may not be public domain elsewhere. More information about this can be found here.

Misc. Comments

Apparently begun for a planned but unrealized ballet for Léonide Massine. In 1939 Hindemith incorporated the work in a draft scenario for a ballet to be called Der Kinderkreuzzug (The Children's Crusade), but this plan was also never realized.
