Violin Concerto No.1, Op.50 (Jaques-Dalcroze, Emile)

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 1924 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.

Misc. Comments

Amazon links above to a recording on Guild with violinist Rodion Zamuruev (Moscow Symphony/Anissimov; with both Jaques-Dalcroze violin concerto and the Poème sometimes referred to as the 2nd violin concerto (publisher's title, not the composer's)). This is available via NML, and the program notes give 1901 for composition date.

Sometimes referred to as concerto No.2, as in this description of a January 1904 performance. There is a nocturne for violin and orchestra debuted in 1900 which may explain this.
