Symphony No.4, Op.16 (Striegler, Kurt)

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.

The 4th section not only has the same tempo as, but begins with the same material as, the first- this may be another Liszt B minor sonata/Schoenberg chamber symphony 4/1 double-structure.

NZM 1913 p.556 gives Striegler's B minor symphony among the works to be performed ("premiered" is not said) in the upcoming season in Dresden beginning in October 1913. (As opposed to the preceding sentence which does note, accurately, that the season would contain the "Uraufführung" of Felix Draeseke's Symphony (no.4) in E minor Comica... (a work not published, incidentally, until the 1990s...))
