These are identified by their exact instrumentation, and as "set as scored." In all three of these cases, additional string parts must be ordered separately.

Concerto solo parts, where available, are generally not included in the sets unless so indicated; if a separate price is given for these, they are available and must be ordered separately. If such parts are part of the orchestration, but are not available, they will be indicated by square brackets, thus: [pf solo]. Orchestral keyboard parts, however, are generally included in the set.
