Poème for Violin and Orchestra (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.

Misc. Comments

1902 was the year of publication of the 1st concerto, 1911 of the 2nd ?... (will look into this again. A summary description of a recording of the 2nd concerto claims it was composed in 1909. The program notes by Jacques Tchamketten give "probably" begun in early 1909 (and premiered in November 1909). The title "Violin Concerto No.2" originates with the publisher and does not appear on any of the manuscripts; so far as the composer was concerned the work was entitled "Poème".
