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

(There aren't four movements really, though there are four large sections (and even those are so subdivided it can be hard on paper- easier in sound, admittedly- relatively... - to tell that these are interior divisions of sections whereas these are divisions between larger sections of the big movement. There's only one real pause in the score, a brief one between the second and third "movements". If I say that in this respect it was maybe pretty typical of the time- or maybe actually forward-looking to features of chamber music of a decade later, morelike- I still find it a -most- exceptional and excellent work. Anyhow. - Schissel )

(According to the source cited @ Wikipedia, the 1909 concert had 2 Enescu premieres- the Octet, and the only just-completed first piano quartet.)
