Violin Concerto No.2, Op.43 (Burleigh, Cecil)

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 1926 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.

The publisher noted that the themes used in the work "while imbued with the characteristic idioms of Indian music, are not based upon any Indian sources, and the material as a whole, is entirely the author's invention."
