As a welcome aid to becoming acquainted with new music, in the 19th century piano arrangements fulfilled something of the function of today’s broadcasts and recordings. Rheinberger made piano arrangements, mostly for four hands, of many of his works. For example, he presented the successful organ concertos and his most popular chamber music works in this form. He arranged his Piano Concerto for two pianos, and also the Suite for organ, violin and cello. A curiosity is the Tarantella from his op. 122 in a version for two pianos, eight (!) hands.
