Does anyone have a 6H (one piano) arrangement of the Khachaturian Sabre Dance?

No, I don't, but I do have 1P4H and 2P4H, so mathematically one could fit 6H in there somewhere :)

Orford Six Pianos is an intriguing sounding CD,
with music by Saint-Saens, Prokofiev, Rachmaninov,
Gounod et al, arranged for 6 pianos, 12 hands,
48 fingers, 12 thumbs and 528 piano keys. Does
anyone have it, and if so, do they recommend it?

Yes, I do have it and frankly recommend it. Two of the pieces are for 2P8H, the others were transcribed by Olivier Godin, one of the 6 pianists involved, for 6P12H, and rather convincingly so!

Here's a new scan of the same edition (posted earlier) of the Khachaturian Sabre Dance for 8h 2p. Used my teacher's copy and tried to trim and straighten the text. (She is making me and 3 other adult amateurs play this in a month and is wickedly driving us along. We think we sound great, but she assures us that we actually sound like an unhinged pack of gibbering hamsters on amphetamines and if we don't get in sync, she'll be forced to lace her next batch of borscht with strychnine and commit suicide.)

I have actually heard an unhinged pack of gibbering hamsters but not on amphetamines. Is there any difference?
