Notes & Reviews:

"German-born but London-based, 'Glorious John' Cramer was one of the most celebrated composer-virtuosi of his day... it would be hard to imagine a more colourful, sympathetic advocate than Howard Shelley. He despatches Cramer's keyboard pyrotechnics with an ideal blend of elegance and devil-may-care brilliance, and shapes the lyrical themes with a 'cantabile' expressiveness that was a hallmark of the composer's own playing." ***** - Richard Wigmore, BBC
