Piano Concerto No.1 (Scott, Cyril)

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 1927 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.

Navigation etc.

Score and parts available at the Fleisher Collection at the Free Library of Philadelphia.

There are at least two recordings available (on Chandos and on Lyrita) as of 2017 (the Lyrita CD contains a reissue of the 1975 Lyrita LP premiere of the first concerto; both concertos recorded in 1974.) The Lyrita recording is either of a more extended (uncut?) score or is slower in some places, as it seems to be 10 minutes longer. (The first movement is 5 minutes longer in Ogdon's recording, the 2nd movement 3 minutes longer, the finale almost two minutes longer.)

RAM copy of score gives 1915 for date of composition.
