Wow, I just noticed that there is not one single score of Benjamin Britten on the IMSLP. Why is that? Copyright protection?

His earliest published work, "The Birds", was published in 1935, so assuming everything of his was properly renewed etc., nothing of his is public domain in the USA, either- hence US, CA, and EU are all impossible, and indeed 1935+90+1=2026..., assuming laws stay the same. (Or is the duration in the US 95 years for something published after 1922? I forget...)
