Could anyone tell me if there is a harp part in any of the following works:
There is one harp part in Rachmaninoff’s “Symphonic Dances”, not too technically challenging but fun to play. Nothing in the Beethoven, Brahms, Mendelssohn, Haydn or Tchaik. pieces you listed.
You can view the instrumentation for various orchestra works at http://www.thompsonedition.com/browse.php or http://www.kalmus-music.com/poe.php or http://www.kalmus-music.com/kalorchsearch.php
They won’t tell you how difficult the part is, but you can at least research which orchestra pieces include harp in the score.

Thank you very much. I really appreciate your responses.
Definitely in print, I think my latest copy is the 5th edition. This is an extremely interesting book if you love orchestral music whether you play or not.
The book for finding STANDARD orchestra repertoire:
I use my printed ASCAP and BMI catalogs. Unfortunately, their websites are not yet searchable by instrumentation.
