    Where could I find the harp part for Symphony no 3 by Rachmaninoff, I don’t think I’ve ever played in anything of his……

    Rental only as far as I know. Maybe you can view enough of the score to get and idea from here:

    The score is on IMSLP, but not the individual parts.

    I do have the harp part, which I have edited here and there, mainly for enharmonics. The very ending is quite exposed and fast, so I did some editing there as well. It is a gorgeous piece, with a lot of exposed playing.

    Thank you all, I am browsing the pdf of the score on imslp, it certainly saves a trip to the library and to Elizabeth, it would be very useful to see a part with the enharmonic corrections, especially as I don’t have the technology to make tidy edits.

    I love how publishers clamp down on players copying parts, and only allowing excerpts, as if that was enough to prepare from. They are apparently afraid one might go to the trouble of acquiring all the parts in order to have a performance. If they sold copies of parts, they wouldn’t have to worry about losing rentals, would they?

    I have often bought bona fida parts from the publisher they are usually most obliging and Holywell have a good stock too.
