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 1923 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.

Misc. Comments

Op.24 No.2 is the Kleine Kammermusik for wind quintet.

A subsequently rejected second movement (the first page of which survives in manuscript score) seems to have been used in some early performances, although the definitive second movement had already been composed by the time of the premiere. Hindemith edited the harmonium part for accordion in fall 1952 for subsequent printings of the score , although no new edition or plate numbers were assigned to these printings. The third movement was published in an arrangement for piano by Hindemith as a supplement to the July 1922 special issue of the Neue Musik-Zeitung.
