Fantasie in B-flat minor (Swinstead, Felix)

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.

published by 1916 (unless Swinstead wrote two Fantasias in the same key), as the Library of Congress copyright entries book for that year lists it. Perhaps composed (in some form) even by 1910, as a fantasia by Felix Swinstead is mentioned as performed on December 12 1910 in the January 1 1911 Musical Times (page 30, London Concerts, The Patron's Fund Concert)- the same??

(Puzzlement really for the work to be recopyrighted in 4 years.... something odd. Massive revision or two separate works?)
