Le rossignol, K018 (Stravinsky, Igor)

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 1927 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
#755512: I apologize as to the quality of the scan of this score. I used an overhead scanner for the first time with this item (the item's pages were extremely brittle and falling apart) and one feature, the book scan correction feature in which I used incorrectly, and this caused the feature to warp the pages out of proportion, some pages I attempted to fix them manually but were taking too much time as of this message so decided to upload what I have done so far, but most pages need to be reprocessed and dewarped further. If anyone wants to try to improve this scan further, let me know as I can provide the color source scans associated with this if you would like to help fix this further. For now, I will consider this scan a work in progress, at some point I might come back to this scan to fix it up more when I have time.
