Description: In addition to three items whose orchestral versions appear on 10P006 (p.2), there are several more short, lyrical, simply communicative pieces of one to five minutes (with First Recordings asterisked above), crowned by the 1881 symphony (whose orchestral version has never been recorded), a four-movement work of 31 minutes which shows the teenage Mascagni to be an avid follower of the late Classical and early Romantic styles. Marco Sollini (piano), Salvatore Barbatano (four hands).
