Thunderbird Suite, Op.63 (Cadman, Charles Wakefield)

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

  • Originally composed for orchestra to serve as incidental music for a play entitled Thunderbird by Norman Bel Geddes. The play was never staged. Circumstantial evidence suggests that the suite for orchestra was premiered by the Los Angeles Philharmonic on Jan. 9, 1917. Have been unable to determine if the orchestral version was ever published.
