String Quartet No.1, Op.3 (Jongen, Joseph)
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.

This file is part of the Sibley Mirroring Project. See also a 1896 edition of Deutsche Musikbibliographie (Volume 68, page 157.) In the Eulenburg score the first movement's "Introduzione" is just "Introduction", and scherzando applies in italics only to the violin parts (as does con granda espressione in the 2nd movement). Definitely seems to be a 2nd edition even though the modifications are slight (besides the collation of parts into score, that is).
