@ Perry Whelan - Mendelssohn Early pieces for Violin and Piano

January 13, 2019, 12:18 PM · Last month you asked for the sheets for Mendelssohns early pieces for Violin and Piano.
If you have not managed to find them I now have them and can send you a PDF if you send me your e-mail.

I wonder wjere does this innate talent come from at such a young age in life and it just awes me and makes me feel so mediocre.

January 14, 2019, 1:54 AM · His works are public domain, but these were published in 1985, so I'm not sure if the edition is public domain. Does someone here know how long the copyright is on sheet music editions?
January 14, 2019, 9:51 AM · An edition maintains copyright just like an original work, as far as I know.
Edited: January 14, 2019, 10:22 AM · Pretty much 95 years after publication. Might be earlier for stuff published from 1924 to 1964 - but if the composer or heirs requested extension it will still be 95 years after original publication date.

So basically anything first published during a person's awareness of it will remain in copyright all their life long!

I was unable to source these early works from our local conservatory. I've not heard back from R. Larry Todd. However, Nicholas Milton did follow-up, but was, himself, unable to locate the materials.
