Sorry if there's another thread for this.

Apart from fiddlerman.com, where there's loads of free sheet music, especially studies and exercises, I found these two places. The first looks like being all of Sitt op.32 and the other two are random.

The big one, of course, is IMSLP, the largest repository of public domain music on the web. That's a source every intermediate-or-higher level musician should know, and one that that almost every orchestra librarian today uses frequently.

@AndrewH is right https://imslp.org/wiki/Main_Page has so much sheet music for violin that I don't think I'll ever run out of new stuff to practice 🙂

Since etudes were mentioned in another thread, I'll mention that I found some really neat and fun etudes by Auguste Samie, especially op 31, 32 and 33. These are really fun pieces, and not too difficult.

I thought IMSLP was pay-only. Did I get that wrong?

@Gordon Shumway I have contributed to imslp, but was able to download before that. Look for the link "continue to my download" or something similar, when you get prompted for a donation or to login (it sort of implies you need to pay, but it's not so:) )

From their FAQ page:

How do I register to IMSLP?

You simply click on the "Log in/Create account" button on the top-rightmost corner of any page, and fill in your data.
Note: There is no need to register or log in simply to download music. The only reason to log-in is to upload new files and make other contributions.

In fact I've just downloaded something from imslp to check and it worked. Either I did something wrong before or I was confused. Sorry.

A paid account allows you to avoid the 15 second delay before downloading. That's all.

Thanks - I didn't see that countdown before.

Very true. New York Phil uploads all their scores digitally too. I don't know if there is a way to view the sheet music without the watermark though.
