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.

Misc. Comments

Apparently numbering here not affected by McEwen's having rejected his first 2 quartets - this one still described as quartet no.4 both on original printing and in current accountings, unlike the Biscay Quartet (published as no.8, later described by the composer as no.6) and Threnody (no.9/no.7) etc.
