‘Howard Shelley is a splendid soloist, fully up to the rhetoric and touching the listener when the passion subsides, creating a haunting stillness at the very end. Again splendid recording.’
The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs

‘Howard Shelley plays with brilliance and much sensitivity, and Alwyn admirers will be glad to have the work available on record …’
The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs

'Shelley rises to the technical challenges of both concertos with verve and authority, and is well served by Hickox's accompaniments and the big sound of Chandos' recording.'
International Piano Magazine

‘Hickox is naturally attuned to the idiom and it obviously fires him …Howard Shelley combines a real sweep with gentle, introspective lyricism. The recording is on a comparably large scale and is very believable.’
Gramophone
