Copyright Information
In the USA this work is most likely in the public domain because no renewal was found after a thorough search of the Catalog of Copyright Entries and it was ineligible for "restoration" under GATT/TRIPS due to being in the public domain its home country on the relevant restoration date.
The copyright on the piece itself expired in the US due to non-renewal. Szymanowski's work was PD in Poland in 1996 before being restored there in 2003. The translations, however, were restored under the URAA and so the edition with the translations is not PD-US until 2024.
