According to a pianist's webpage, is due for release on a recording in late 2010, but has not (I believe) been recorded complete yet (individual movements have - the Alla Polacca had some favor as an independent movement, I knew of it before knowing of the suite.)
What may have been this suite was performed in Leipzig on February 9 1871 (according to AMZ February 15 1871, page 110), and this may have been its premiere. (However, other works listed in the concert report that were by Hiller- the 3rd piano quartet in A op.133 was performed on the 11th Feb., for instance, (a similarly lengthy program), and some songs for women's voices- are described explicitly as being performed zum ersten Male, so perhaps not. The concert listing in AMZ says 3. Suite for Pianoforte... but the 3 refers to place in the (large) program, not "3rd Suite".
