Cello Sonata (Pizzetti, Ildebrando)

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.

Cello part possibly edited by Luigi Silva (1903-1961). Needs looking into. According to Worldcat, a copy of the 1923 first edition at a New Zealand library has "Performance notes in the hand of Luigi Silva.", hence this user's confusion on the subject...
F major but the F minor finale ends on a D major chord with an added B-natural.

According to the notes to the recording on the Gega label, related to the death of (perhaps dedicated to, hence Maria a/S/a/v which may actually be S/a/v/a - S[tr]a[di]va[ri] ??) his recently deceased wife Maria Stradivari.
