Notes and Editorial Reviews

“Howard Shelley gives delightfully fresh and characterful readings of both concertos, bringing out their strength and purposefulness as well as their poetry, never overblown or sentimental… an outstanding digital bargain.” -- Penguin Guide (3 stars)

“This is a real bargain….orchestral phrases are well moulded in tone…ensemble is admirable, and textures well integrated….all the drama without ever falling into the trap of exaggeration.” -- Gramophone
