Reviews

'Mr Shelley's expansive, passionate playing and his command of the broad structure of the piece capture its atmosphere eloquently. It is valuable, too, to have on this disc a number of rarely-heard miniatures in addition to the early works composed before Rachmaninov left Russia' (The Daily Telegraph)

'This is an album of pleasant discoveries, 60 minutes of them, beautifully played and truthfully recorded. Enthusiastically recommended – indeed, it is one of the most satisfying and enterprising piano recordings of the year' (American Record Guide)

'Highly recommended' (Ovation)

'A fine and enterprising recital' (Classical Collection)

'This superb recording gathers together … an enchanting stream of miniatures and rarities' (Music and Musicians)
