6 Hands at one piano

The inspiration for this thread comes from the only piece I know in this genre. I think it is a neglected masterpice.

Here is the link to the IMSLP score:

I started writing a solo piano version of this piece but stopped after it was about three quarters done.

Actually, I've heard one other 6 hands at one piano work by Czerny(?). All I could remmeber about the piece was that it featured descending glissandos by the person seated farthest at the right. This could only be accomplished by having the other two pianists lean back extremely farto the delight of the audience. I've tried finding the name of this piece without success. Anyone know which one this is?
