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.

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).
