Is there any sheet music available for the Mendez version of the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto as played on The Majestic Sound of Rafael Mendez?
Thanks,
Mike

Yes. Several of Mendez' early solos were actually arranged by Charles Koff. Although he is dead now, his daughter still sells copies of her dad's arrangements.

This is the last known address I have for Wendy Nash:

I also found this name and email address in my notes. I'm not sure which one is most recent.

Thanks much. I have the Carl Fisher collection of Mendez arrangements but the Mendelssohn concerto is not included in that.

Not to quibble but if Mr Hickman is correct and the arrangement is still available (and covered under copyright) the OP might consider supporting the arranger, and his heirs and ask about purchasing a copy. As trumpet players we owe an awful lot to Mendez and to the music he created.

I was able to get ahold of Renee Koff Saifer, the daughter of the original arranger Charles Koff who has now passed on. She dug up the part and was kind enough to send me a copy, and wanted me to pass the word along that parts are available for $10 per part. She can be reached at koffmusic@gmail.com.
