Reviews

'A fine achievement from Howard Shelley and Hyperion alike. These superbly recorded, idiomatic readings demonstrate Shelley's virtuoso pianism and affinity for this music in performances of the highest calibre' (BBC Music Magazine Top 1000 CDs Guide)

'A significant testimony to Howard Shelley's artistry. Pianistically impeccable, he understands what Rachmaninov was about' (Gramophone)
