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.

Please obey the copyright laws of your country. IMSLP does not assume any sort of legal responsibility or liability for the consequences of downloading files that are not in the public domain in your country.

Misc. Notes:

This edition could be a reprint of the 1936 first edition. Re-publication in 1957 without the 1936 notice present would then be publication with a defective notice - injecting the work into the US public domain.

One published version at least has "Sonata for Piano in D minor", though the work does conclude more in E/B minor... (not that that's unusual in 1935.)
