Piano Concerto No.1 (Scott, Cyril)

This work is most likely NOT public domain in either Canada and other countries where the term is life+50 years (like China, Japan, Korea and many others worldwide), or the EU and in countries where the copyright term is life+70 years. However, as this work was first published before 1925 or failed to meet notice or renewal requirements, it is almost certainly public domain in the USA and is therefore hosted on an American server for US residents only.

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.)
