    There is a recording released fairly recently, that I like a lot:

    In my view Brahms's Haydn Variations are much better in their orchestral form than on the piano, and it's a little known fact that the piano version was conceived and written first.

    Liszt's orchestration of the Wanderer Fantasy is pretty silly but good fun if you enjoy Liszt's piano concerti and want more.
