Violin Sonata, Op.21 (Haas, Joseph)

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.

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.

Navigation etc.

Could Hofkonzertmeister (the job title given) also describe the pianist Karl Wendling (1857-1918)? Unfortunately the work was at least published at a time when both pianist and violinist were alive so that there is some ambiguity which of them is the dedicatee... (ah. In 1903 in a journal "Blätter für Haus- und Kirchenmusik" - "Hofkonzertmeister Carl Wendling spielte an derselben Stelle die Solo-Violine in der Hafner-Serenade von Mozart künstlerisch vollendet. "- that is, the violinist Carl Wendling is referred to...)
