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.

This, Op.15, is actually Kornauth's second violin sonata, after Op.9. It was followed by a late Flute Sonatina, Op.46a for violin or flute or viola. Described as a sonata on the score but as a sonatina in some recordings (and perhaps also by the composer, but this will take looking into); will tag only as a sonata until the authority of the alternate title "sonatina" can be determined.
