Symphony No.2, Op.27 (Grechaninov, Aleksandr)

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 1928 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.

1902-09 from last page of score might mean 1902-1909 or it might mean September 1902. Unclear at this point...

Score certainly seems to be an "A minor" symphony by most usual standards. (Not listed on score as being in A major. Did the composer insist on "A major" mode in some description of it?)
