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.

A review of an early performance- perhaps the premiere- appears in the Jan. 11 1896 issue of "La Chronique des arts et de la curiosité: supplément à la Gazette des beaux-arts" (and in other places); (prelude to the drama) Floréal by Amédée Dutacq was another work on the program, etc., by the Concerts Colonne et (de?) Lamoureux (and? of?) the National Society of Music.
Premiere December 29 1895 according to notes to first recording (Timpani 1C1093.)
