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 1926 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.

|Extra Information||The subtitle "Desiat' pesen iz Anny Akhmatovoi" (10 pieces) suggests there was a group of 10 although only 5 were published.|
Actually, www.lourie.ch/de/arthur-lourie/werke has "10 Lieder nach Anna Achmatova; davon realisiert..." - so it seems? that 10 were planned but only 5 were composed??... though perhaps "Stimme der Muse"/"Golos Musy" and other works are related.
