Description: The rarities here are the Debussy, which has been recorded in its solo piano version but not in this four-hands version dating from 1918, the short Casella suite - one of those works about childhood but not for children, and Hill’s brief (3:46) but intense elegy for his father written in the early 1980s. Julian Jacobson & Mariko Brown (piano[s]).
