In the Tatras, Op.26 (Novák, Vítězslav)

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 1924 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.

Misc. Comments

Source for revision dates - needs further sourcing. [Edit: Grove Music confirms these dates, i.e. 1905 and 1907).

Fleisher gives "25 minutes" but the average length of recordings has been 17. (Date of premiere at Fleisher given it seems both in Julian and Gregorian- in 1907 in Prague? Prague was part of Austria at the time which changed to the Gregorian calendar in 1583. Erm.)
