Leopold Kozeluch-another composer-pianist trying to make his way in 1780s Vienna-has not been treated kindly by posterity, suffering that posthumous obscurity shared by so many of Mozart's contemporaries. But his brand of Rococo galanterie, much in evidence in these three piano concertos, is guaranteed to delight, especially in such affectionately attentive performances as these.

'It's impossible to imagine more compelling performances of this music-Howard Shelley is truly a rescuer of lost musical souls' (Gramophone)

'Howard Shelley and the London Mozart Players make a persuasive case for his Piano Concertos Nos 1, 5 and 6, where classical refinement and ebullience go hand in hand' (Financial Times)

'Howard Shelley is as persuasive a soloist as one could wish for, bringing a limpid delicacy to the slow movements and a tempered brilliance to the outer movements that makes the most of their fantasia-like developments … ornamentation is discreet and stylish, as are the accompaniments, the London Mozart Players in their element, with the orchestral tuttis always pert and finely shaded' (The Europadisc)
