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!

From Georgian music site.

Revaz Ilich Laghidze. Born 1921, Bagdadi [now Mayakovsky]; died 1981. Georgian composer.

Graduated in 1948 from the Tbilisi Conservatoire where he studied with Balanchivadze, with further post graduate work from 1949-52. From 1941-45 was violinist in the Georgian Philharmonic Orchestra, and from 1945-49 with Georgian Radio. From 1961 he taught at the Tbilisi Pedagogical Institute before joining the faculty of the Tbilisi Conservatoire in 1964. Particularly noted for his many songs and choral works, plus the symphonic picture ‘Sachidao’; he was also a noted film music composer with twenty-nine films to his credit.

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.
