Cello Sonata No.1 (Ropartz, Guy)

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.

Editor First edition
Publisher. Info. Paris: A. Durand & Fils, 1904. Plate D. & F. 6458.
Misc. Notes Paul Coutan's working edition, offered by the composer with the latter's signature on the piano part (added opposite as a TN-*.jpg file), recalling a musical meeting with his addressee and wishing him good luck in his career, a wish that was subsequently not fully developed. It is likely the annotations were made under Paul Coutan's teacher's supervision, Paul Bazelaire. The scans are colored and full page, to make the pencilled markings stand out.
