Violin Sonata No.2, Op.8 (Hurum, Alf)

This work is most likely NOT public domain in either Canada and other countries where the term is life+50 years (like China, Hong Kong, New Zealand 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 1928 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.

Recorded in 1999 by Stephan Barratt-Due, violin and Øyvind Aase, piano on an album also including the violin sonata no.1 op.2 and two other works (on the Norwegian label Thema.)

first published by Hofmeister in 1915 acc. to HMB . (Sibley says as much - "previously published by etc.") and by Hansen. Dutch Royal Library entry says published by Hansen in 1916 and by Hofmeister the same year (?), composed 1915-1916. (!) (However: Worldcat has: ©1916, Hofmeister. so HMB received a pre-publication copy, perhaps, or- something...) Indeed, above score copublished with Hofmeister as is clear from its cover.
