Mephistowalzer, Op.37 (Palmgren, Selim)
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.

*The attribution to an American "editor" was an unsuccessful attempt to secure US copyright for a Finnish work. Finland had no copyright relations with the USA until 1929.

The printed indication of "op. 37 no. 2" is misleading since there has never been a number "1" in this opus ! So this is only a single piece.
