Scriabin´s piano sonatas, Nielsen piano works (except the Three Piano Pieces, that have been orchestrated), Schubert´s D960 in an experimental/fragmented form ...  Maybe all of them with a still prominent piano part ...

I always thought Debussy's L'isle Joyeuse should have been orchestrated. According to the owner of the channel: The orchestration was made by Bernardino Molinari in 1923, a friend of Debussy's, "according to Debussy's indications".

nor in competing for the favor of wayward friends.
His only competition was with himself. — Françoise Gilot
