Has anyone played the Shostakovitch Symphony #7? I know it has 2 harps in the instrumentation. Looking for some idea of level. Also are the 2 parts different or just doubled? If they’re different, is there any difference in the level of difficulty between them? Thanks for your help.
# 4 has 2 real harp parts.
# 5 listed as 2 harps but has only 1 real part.
# 6 has 1 real harp part.
# 7 has 2 real harp parts.
# 11 listed as 4 harps has one real part.
# 13 listed as 4 harps has one real part.

Both engravings have errata lists prepared and posted on the Orchestra Music Errata Catalog. Contact your MOLA librarian for access to errata lists.
