Copyright governing classical music that is more than 100 years is bit different, for variety of reasons. While you can't simply copy a published music score, nor use a recorded music performance without appropriate credit and payment, you are free to perform it and use your performance if you bought official licensed music scores or made your own by listening to it and writing the whole thing down.
