7 Songs, Op.17 (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 1928 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.

Initially, published as "Drei Gesänge / Tre Sanger" before being expanded to 7. (See WorldCat. (Actually, temporal ordering isn't obvious... might have dropped rather than added, of course... and also, name of publication seems to change from Gesänge to Lieder- or - something.) See -also- WorldCat, Lindgren publication of 3 of Op.17 alone, with (Boruttau??) German translation- copublication? with B&H or separate? - ES

The first four or so were published in 1904; the last three were added to the set in over the next few years (between 1906 and 1908 individually, then published as a set perhaps only in 1934- see WorldCat which points this out...)
