There is a polular version on imslp for 1p 4h of this on i imslp, i had not come across more difficult version for 2p 4h also by Merkur.

Based on how it looks vs the other version , seems this one could sound more effective in concert/recital.

Again from personal collection.

This needs no introduction and I realize this one is missing in the Babin archive.

Another from personal library, I and others have provided examples of Grofe and also concert arrangements by Savino.
Here Savino (sometimes used the name Onivas, which is just the same name spelled backwards).

From the Famous Grand Canyon suite, I scanned a solo version in the past but never got around to digitizing the 2 piano arrangement.
