Someone has posted a YouTube video of Harold Truscott's Piano Sonatas 9, 13, 15. It is the Altarus disk of Peter Jacobs playing.

Pretty amazing stuff: that rare thing, piano music that doesn't suck.

Thanks for that! Here's the link:

542,036,670 bytes. Harold Truscott lived from 1914 to 1992. From Wikipedia: "Born into a working-class family in East London, Truscott was largely self-taught. By the age of 15 his strong native urge to compose was interpreted by his father as a sign of mental illness and, finding a psychiatrist to endorse this view, he had his son committed to an asylum. Truscott emerged after 20 weeks with his resolve undimmed."
