Less Popular Vivaldi Sheet Music
Where can I buy sheet music for the less popular Vivaldi Violin Concerti? I am in love with so many of his concerti and wish to study them but finding sheet music for him is so challenging.

I first learned of imslp on this site several years ago and just want to say what a wonderful and amazing wealth of material is available there. I enjoy looking at differeent editions of the same piece to compare bowings and fingerings.
Since Vivaldi came up: Try his sonatas! Not all of them are masterpieces, any more than all of the concertos are. The best ones are well written, emotionally intense. I recommend not to follow the doctrines of period playing (with its preference of choppy bowings and ornaments) too closely and rather try to phrase the larger arches of Vivladi's melodic invention.
