I have been waiting a long time for the ultimate solo piano transcription. No longer! Florian Noack has composed a brilliant piano version for Dmitri Shostakovich’a haunting Second Waltz. (I first heard it on YouTube.) Just got the sheet music!
He would make Franz Liszt proud!!!

I do like that waltz a lot and have heard other piano transcriptions of it. I thought Noack's transcription was OK but had a some superfluous virtuosity. I listened to a few of his other transcriptions like the Bach Concerto for four pianos and enjoyed them more than the waltz.

Do you have any alternative recommendations?

The ones I heard were a long time ago so I don't remember who transcribed them. I suggest just going to YouTube and listening to some. You can probably find a list of transcriptions of the waltz at pianophilia.com which has a huge list of transcriptions.
