10 Pieces for Piano, Op.12 (Prokofiev, Sergey)

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 1923 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.

URTEXT EDITION 
This "urtext" or "scholarly" (scientific) edition was published at least 25 years ago in the EU (or 20 years ago in Italy, before 1992 in the former USSR). Hence, the edition is public domain in its country of origin or a government publication. Such editions are also public domain in Canada because they fail to meet the minimum 'threshold of originality' to qualify for copyright as an 'adaptation'. They may not be public domain elsewhere. More information about this can be found here.

Misc. Comments

  • "The tamer binary-form exercises for Lyadov's class did not go entirely to waste. Three turn up in Op.12..."- Nice, Prokofiev: From Russia to the West, 1891-1935, p.50.
  • Grove Music does not list an arrangement by Prokofiev of No.7 for harp, though it does list the 4-bassoon arrangement of No.9 as op.12bis. Thus, it is unknown who did this arrangement. The collection as originally published in 1914 mentioned it as being for either piano or harp, so the composer is likely the arranger by designating it this way.
