As a pianist, conductor, and recording artist, Howard Shelley has enjoyed a distinguished career since his highly acclaimed London debut in 1971, performing each season with renowned orchestras at major venues around the world. Much of his current work is in the combined role of conductor and soloist. He has been closely associated with the music of Rachmaninoff and has performed and recorded complete and award-winning cycles of that composer’s solo piano works, concertos, and songs. He has made more than one hundred commercial recordings, all of which have won outstanding reviews. He has appeared in several television documentaries, including Mother Goose, a documentary on Ravel which won a Gold Medal at the New York Festivals Awards. As a conductor he has worked with all the major London orchestras and many other orchestras in the UK and abroad, including the Hong Kong Philharmonic, Singapore Symphony, Seattle Symphony, Naples Philharmonic, City of Mexico Philharmonic, Munich Symphony, Melbourne Symphony, West Australian Symphony, and Tasmanian Symphony orchestras. His long association with the London Mozart Players has included a substantial period as the orchestra’s Principal Guest Conductor. In 1994 HRH The Prince of Wales conferred on Howard Shelley an Honorary Fellowship of the Royal College of Music, and in the 2009 New Year Honours he was awarded an OBE for services to classical music.
