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 1923 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.

Misc. Comments

Originally 2 movements.

Can't seem to locate the first "public" performance under Schillings; a (November) 1915 performance in Hamburg under von Hausegger is described in NZM (1915, p.396) as the "Uraufführung".
