'In Shelley's Rachmaninov series, I think this the finest achievement among them' (Gramophone)

'Peerless command and inimitable insights' (Hi-Fi News)

'The refinement of the playing reminds one of Rachmaninov's own classic interpretations: few contemporary pianists can equal Shelley's elegant phrasing in pianissimo passages or his imaginative and resourceful use of the pedal. Strongly recommended' (The Monthly Guide to Recorded Music)

'The performance, to say nothing of the sound, is transcendental' (Acoustic Sounds Catalog, USA)
