This work is most likely NOT public domain in either Canada and other countries where the term is life+50 years (like China, Hong Kong, New Zealand 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 1928 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.

Any other performance between about 1936 and 1976 would probably have been known to the composer (even the 1946 one may have been against the composer's wishes (if perhaps winked at)- which were stated in different ways at different times but which between 1936 and which in Britain are enforceable on published scores.)
