Seconded. Didn't know that 4th prelude had such a bombastic ending.

Does anyone have Friedman's arrangement(s) of the BRAHMS Waltz Op.39/15?

They're not on IMSLP under either Brahms or Friedman.

Friedman's recording of what he called the Old English Minuet, Shield's "The Countess of Westmoreland's Delight" is labelled on Spotify as Tausig's arrangement*. Listening through with the published score suggests that it is actually Friedman's arrangement, albeit with some variations to repeated sections.

Allan Evans' bio of Friedman has a discography which only lists the recording of a Friedman arrangement. The published arrangement (1928) predates the recording session in 1929 and concert presentation in 1932.

The Naxos track labelling for this recording has been partially updated to list both Tausig and Friedman, the former's inclusion probably carried over from the Schubert-Tausig Marches Militaire, and is undoubtedly the source of the Spotify error.

*None is listed on https://imslp.org/wiki/List_of_works_by_Carl_Tausig. Other piano arrangements may be found online e.g. H.A. Chambers.

After listening to Friedman's composition Elle Danse, I looked initially at the Breitkopf & Hartel 1921 edition on IMSLP which is dedicated to Anna Pavlova/Pavlowa , showing it as No.5 in the Op.10 set 5 Causeries. (a causery is an informal talk or essay ).

Returning to IMSLP I looked at the complete Op.10 (Polish edition from 1904) and noticed that No.5 is a different arrangement of the same piece, this time dedicated to Comte Charles Rostworoski. It's an easier version marked 'Tempo di Valse" vs "Vivo, sempre grazioso" for the solo edition. Small editorial differences at the start progress to greater divergences throughout. This is not noted in the Friedman bio, although it is mentioned that he recorded a new version of this piece, so perhaps both versions exist in recordings.

Op.10 5 Causeries
1. Intermezzo. Andante pensieroso (E♭ major)
2. Danse fantastique. Allegretto commodo (C major)
3. Capriccietto. Vivace e scherzando (G minor)
4. Chanson triste. Andantino espressivo assai (F minor)
5. Elle danse. Tempo di valse (E major)
