Here's a two piano version of Isidor Philipp's Feux-follets by Paul Kay. The scans are from Haithitrust but I did rework them a bit. Any info on Paul Kay – e.g., bio, is this a real name or pseudonym, etc.?

Dietrich Buxtehude (Transcribed by Vsevolod Dmitrievich Vasiliyev)
2 Toccatas in F major, BuxWV 156-157
(Transcription for 2 Pianos)

I can't find information of the transcriber V. D. Vasiliyev other than he was the dedicatee of the 'Sonata-Poem No.2' by Konstantin Eiges (1875-1950).
It seems that Russian composers liked to transcribe Organ works. It's well known that Feinberg, Gedike, Kabalevsky, Nikolayev and Prokofiev tried to make quality transcriptions of Baroque works!

These pieces are for piano and harmonium - and can of course be played on two pianos, with a different "demand" on the 2 players. It seems that in the (remote) past it wasn't too unusual to have also a harmonium at home, otherwise why would one have provided this kind of transcriptions.
