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 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?
