Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

”Shelley demonstrates his command of this repertoire with all of it’s various scales, double note passages, and octaveshe is a good advocate for these much-neglected sonatas, and one can hear his delight in playing them.”-Fanfare

'Shelley, who adds to unfailing textural clarity, sensitivity of phrasing and fine touch a willingness to seek out what is meaningful in this music and realise it to a degree that might have surprised even its composer' (Gramophone)'Beautifully flexible playing ... Shelley is a first-rate advocate, with passage-work of crystalline clarity, light-footed pedalling, and communicating a sense of deep commitment to this unjustly under-rated repertoire. The sound ... could not be better. Unreservedly recommended' (BBC Music Magazine)

'There is huge variety and pianistic invention ... Shelley brings energy, vitality and clarity to the sparse textures of a work [Op 25 no 5] which owes much to Scarlatti ... Stunning recording quality, exemplary programme notes by the leading authority on Clementi, two discs for the price of one and generous playing time on each, and piano playing of the first order from Howard Shelley' (International Record Review)
