Symphony No.2, Op.43 (Sibelius, Jean)

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.

Please obey the copyright laws of your country. IMSLP does not assume any sort of legal responsibility or liability for the consequences of downloading files that are not in the public domain in your country.

Misc. Comments

Sibelius.fi identifies two versions (1902 and 1903) (though with little further information- this might perhaps be found elsewhere). The movement headings of the first version (premiered by Sibelius in March 1902) differ (as perhaps do other things.) The second and final version was premiered in Stockholm 10 November 1903, conducted by Armas Järnefelt. (Does Tawaststjerna's Sibelius: 1895-1905 even mention a 2nd version? (He does mention the impact of Järnefelt's Stockholm performance on e.g. Stenhammar (who responded by writing Sibelius about his own, later discarded, [first, F major] symphony, among other things...), Peterson-Berger, and others- interesting...) What is Sibelius.fi's source on this?...)
