Notes & Reviews:

Howard Shelley and the Ulster Orchestra return for a second volume in Hyperion's new Classical Piano Concerto series. Daniel Steibelt - the man who dared to challenge Beethoven and lost -ruled the keyboards of northern Europe for a quarter of a century. His concertos were as sensationally popular as the composer was ostentatious. Howard Shelley, doing double duty as pianist and conductor, leads compelling performances of Piano Concertos Nos.3, 5 and 7.

Gramophone Magazine, January 2016
The disc as a whole is worth hearing for Shelley, but otherwise I'd suggest that Steibelt is a niche interest.

American Record Guide, May/June 2016
In the 18th Century manner, Howard Shelley conducts and plays the solo part, handling each job with grace and aplomb. His playing is clean and clear with fingerwork that's a constant pleasure to hear. His readings of the works are free from HIP idiocy, thus have blood in their veins and a pulse in their rhythms.
