Violin Sonata, Op.11 No.1 (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.

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.

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

  • Referred to by Hindemith as "Sonatine" in his war diary. Numbered Op.11 No.2 in manuscript. Hindemith consistently referred to the piece as "für Klavier und Violine." Occasionally referred to as his violin sonata "No.1" in some older sources, but never by Hindemith himself.
-Paul Hindemith: A Research and Information Guide
  • The 3rd movement began work apparently in late May 1918; surviving fragment possibly as late as March 1919; published only in SW.
-Paul Hindemith: A Research and Information Guide
"E-flat major" is an artifact of this site's standardizations but is an inaccurate way to describe this work (or most works by Hindemith after a certain point in this career) - ES
