Ruskija Sceny (Borowski, 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 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.

Cover indicates 3 pieces planned for series: no titles given for numbers 2 & 3 in this issue.

No.1 only was reviewed, with the two Schoumka piano pieces, in the February 1, 1896 Musical Times, London. One is left in some doubt as to whether Nos. 2 and 3 were in fact issued? - Schissel (Pazdirek 1904(?) does list 3, but see above: we have the other two already. Arguably the Valse champetre should be separated out and Scènes russes/Ruskija sceny/Russian Scenes put in "Collections".)
