Piano Concerto No.1, Op.3 (Cleve, Halfdan)

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.

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.

2-piano score contains dates of composition, first performance and copyright (a practice not sufficiently common and much commended.) Hofmeister's Monatsbericht (1903), p.96 by the way. Has been recorded by Thoralf Norheim, piano; Herbert Blomstedt conducting the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra.

First of at least four (five?) piano concertos by this composer (in A major, B minor and E, the last with strings; Op.12 in A minor, possibly a #5 from 1916.)
