Unable to Find Sheet Music for Nardini Violin Concertos
For months I have been trying to locate Nardini's Violin Concertos for Strings and Continuo in C major, G major, D major, and A major. I would like to obtain the solo violin part for these concertos.
Does anyone have any idea where to obtain the sheet music? There is a CD out by the Orchestra de Camera Milano Classica of these concertos, and I believe that they must have used sheet music ( I emailed them, but have not received a reply). Also, I have emailed numerous sheet music companies and they have not been able to obtain it.

Thank you for reading.
See if this is what you are looking for. There are string and basso parts. I did not take the time to check the recording you cited against the sheet music.
If you go to the above IMSLP link and move your mouse pointer to the region at the end of the line, you will reveal a small number of letters. If one of them is "N" and you click on it you will be taken to a list of free streamable recordings available by courtesy of Naxos. In this case the recordings are Nardini's Op 1 Nos 2, 4-6 performed by Mauro Rossi with the Orchestra da Camera Milano Classica.
Hello Carmen Tanzio, thank you for the reply. I have looked over the imslp website and went through everything under Nardini. I do have this sheet music printed but only number 5 corresponds to the recording. Number 5 is the A Major Concerto ( which is very beautiful!)
Hello Trevor Jennings, thanks for this information. I have listened to the CD nonstop for a year, awaiting the day I find the sheet music and am able to play it!
I note that the YouTube video does not list the performers - not an uncommon omission if the recording is currently commercial. However, one comment on the YT video was that it is a CD on a specific label. Now, the label on the IMSLP recording is ... well, I leave you to look for yourself.
A couple of free easy-to-use apps that have been around for a while: ClipGrab - which enables many YouTube videos to be downloaded, or audio extracted, obviously for personal and private use only; and a straightforward video editor - Avidemux - which does basic editing, combining and saving in different formats.
I should warn that some of the tips above about youtube etc. are likely copyright violations. We are musicians ourselves and ought to be aware of the importance of this and we ought to follow the rules.
@ Albrecht Zumbrunn,
https://opac.rism.info appears to be a very useful resource for original manuscripts, autographs and printed scores.
I have a copy of the Nardini G Major Violin Concerto edited and with cadenzas by Zvi Zeitlin published by Schirmer in 1970 based on the manuscript in the UC Music Library, Berkeley.

Luc Dejans, that's good stuff - 85 pages of the six concertos of opus 1 including solo and orchestral parts!
