Rachmaninoff's version of Mendelssohn's Scherzo from "A Midsummer Night's Dream" is one of the most famous piano transcriptions.
Pianist Charles Rosen's 1966 LP "Virtuoso!" was one of my dad's favorites. Athough he took good care of his records, I spent several hours using Adobe Audition 3.0 to digitally restore this track, trying to remove the clicks, pops, and hiss without compromising the sound quality.
