Howard Shelley and the Ulster Orchestra return for a second volume in Hyperion's new Classical Piano Concerto series. Daniel Steibelt-the man who dared to challenge Beethoven and lost-ruled the keyboards of northern Europe for a quarter of a century, his own concertos as sensationally popular as their composer was ostentatious.
'Shelley's playing is graceful and delivers the full value of Steibelt's decorative tunes, many of them finely crafted and memorable … the orchestra is superbly balanced with the piano, and while conducted from the keyboard, their performance is unerringly intimate with the soloist. The recording is a welcome document of a deserving, if lesser known, composer' (The Whole Note, Canada)
'Shelley brings Steibelt's music back to life with all the panache we have come to expect from the many other piano concertos he has recorded for Hyperion in their previous Romantic piano concerto series' (Classic FM)
