Viola Sonata, Op.11 No.4 (Hindemith, Paul)
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.

- Sketches to the first movements are in a book dated between 1914 and 1916, although it is unlikely that these entries were made before 1919. Occasionally referred to as his viola sonata "No.1" or "in F major" in some older sources, but never by Hindemith himself.
