Chôros No.1, W161 (Villa-Lobos, Heitor)
It is 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 (like China, Japan, Korea and many others worldwide). As this work was first published before 1923 or failed to meet notice or renewal requirements to secure statutory copyright, it is very likely to be public domain in the USA as well.

Re "1920 - Rio de Janeiro: Sampaio Araujo" - is there evidence of this edition that can be presented, or even one published before 1959? Worldcat at least has nothing about it that I can find (but I know Worldcat is nowhere near complete, and sometimes one has to search very cleverly).
