Violin Sonata No.1, Op.59 (Scott, Cyril)

This work is most likely NOT public domain in either Canada and other countries where the term is life+50 years (like China, Japan, Korea 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 1924 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.

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

NML lists two recordings at least, one on Naxos, one on Affetto (this latter substantially longer, at 40 minutes.) One may be of the 1956 version, however. According to a description on a YouTube video of the first movement only, the 1908 version is uncut with a substantially longer, 12-minute first movement (which can't be said of the Naxos recording).
