Notes & Reviews:

This 'Classics' release marks the 50th anniversary of Dohnanyi's death and reprises the two Piano Concertos performed in great style by Howard Shelley. He is accompanied by the BBC Philharmonic and conductor Matthias Bamert. The first concerto was composed whilst Dohnanyi was just 21, and won the prestigious Bosendorfer prize. The second concerto was composed 50 years later and is a thoroughly engaging work, notable for being perhaps one of the last substantial piano concertos written in the grand Romantic style. The Daily Telegraph commented of the original release "Howard Shelley brings breadth and bravura to the Piano Concerto No.2" and Gramophone magazine "Howard Shelley is as elegant and professional as you might expect".

"Readers are advised that this is a reissue where both concertos now appear in tandem...this Chandos reissue as the advantage of extra luscious and juicy sound, plus a mid-price cost...excellent notes."-American Record Guide

"Too rarely heard concertos...for Shelley, it's an utterly jaw-dropping tour de force." -BBC Music Magazine *****
