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.

Composition date is given as "1910" on the score, 1911 elsewhere- perhaps begun in 1910, concluded in 1911? 1908-1911 according to notes to Timpani recording.
Given its US premiere by the Boston Symphony conducted by Karl Muck (not André Caplet as claimed in the Timpani notes), October 24, 1914. (The Timpani notes one can usually defer to, but on matters specifically Boston Symphony there should be no reason to doubt the Boston Symphony's own records.)
