Beethoven's Liszt, or Liszt's Beethoven?

Franz Liszt
Ludwig van Beethoven
Beethoven's Symphony No. 6 was written for symphony orchestra.  That shouldn't surprise anyone.


Liszt's Beethoven's Symphony No. 6 was written for solo piano.  That should surprise everyone except those who know Liszt.


Liszt actually composed transcriptions for all 9 of Beethoven's Symphonies - Published in 1865.
