Toccata in the Style of Frescobaldi (Cassadó, Gaspar)

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 1926 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.

Bogus copyright renewal.

In the USA this work is most likely in the public domain because it was published without a compliant copyright notice, no renewal was found after a thorough search of the Catalog of Copyright Entries, or it was either ineligible for "restoration" under GATT/TRIPs and/or no record of an NIE filing was found in the online records of the US Copyright Office.

This composition, often-performed both in its original form and in arrangements for band or orchestra, appears to be the work of its “arranger,” Gaspar Cassadó (1897-1966). It is in a faux late eighteenth-century style, and has no connection with any composition of Frescobaldi. According to Cassadó it was based on an organ piece he found with Frescobaldi’s name “in the archives of La Merced, the Conservatory of Music at Barcelona,” but it is believed that he claimed his in order to cover up his forgery; see Chaitkin (2001), in Tutti Celli, Newsletter of the Internet Cello Society 7.2 (March-April 2001), accessible at <http://www.cello.org/Newsletter/Articles/cassado/chapter2.htm>.
