Unfortunatly most orchestral pieces such as Shostakovitch are only sold in full sets (full score) or are rental pieces. Unlike band music, which is mass printed, parts are not sold individually. Also, orchestra pieces tend to be much more expensive than compositions for band. Of course I am refering to major pieces, not something along the lines of something arranged by Calvin Custer.
