This "urtext" or "scholarly" (scientific) edition was published at least 25 years ago in the EU (or 20 years ago in Italy, before 1997 in the former USSR). Hence, the edition is public domain in its country of origin or a government publication. Such editions are also public domain in Canada because they fail to meet the minimum 'threshold of originality' to qualify for copyright as an 'adaptation'. They may not be public domain elsewhere.

Navigation etc.

There are no trumpets in this piece. The solo violins in this piece are instructed to imitate the sound of a marine trumpet (trombe marina) which was not a brass instrument, but a large bowed instrument and one string with a very buzzy tone. Vivaldi "adapted" some violins owned by the Pieta for roles like this by attaching pieces of metal to the bridge which would rattle on the body of the instrument. There are 3 solo concerti for this instrument by Vivaldi.
