This work is most likely NOT public domain in either Canada and other countries where the term is life+50 years (like China, Hong Kong, New Zealand 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 1928 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.

One of several solo violin sonatas by Jarnach. There is also his sonata Op.8 published by Zierfuss in 1913, Op.11 (1913, published in 2010 edited by Kolja Lessing) and an A minor sonata published 1953 by Robert Lienau (edited by Hamann). (Perhaps some sonatas still in manuscript as well, don't know.)

Correction: the "1953 sonata" is a "neudruck" of Op.8 edited by violinist Bernhard Hamann (1906-68). I should have checked- it says so clearly when one looks @ Worldcat. So, make that 3 violin solo sonatas (maybe more, but 3 one can verify.)
