Notes & Reviews:

"Shelley...is outstanding in this music, synthesizing the classical and romantic elements perfectly. A natural Mozartian, he allies his poise and clarity to a fearless technique, and absorbs Hummel's most ostentatious demands into the musical fabric, giving the decorative solo part the necessary grace and piquancy." -Gramophone 'Critics' Choice

BBC Music Magazine
All these pieces... are vividly performed by the London Mozart Players, while pianist Howard Shelley throws off Hummel's copious cascade of notes with appropriate panache.

Gramophone Magazine
Shelley's gifts of agility and articulation mean he can make such decorative writing a delight. As ever in this Chandos series, the first-rate recording is clear and vivid, warm and full.
