Sterndale Bennett’s Piano Concertos from Shelley

Sterndale Bennett: Piano Concertos Nos. 1 – 3

Howard Shelley (piano & conductor), BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra

In the latest addition to Hyperion’s commendable Romantic Piano Concerto series Howard Shelley gives us some highly expressive accounts of these rarities. These three works are shown off in their best light in this well recorded, well filled (almost 80 minutes) disc.  All three works display an innate musicality and this release is a must for collectors of the series and is highly recommended listening for those who wish to explore the wider piano repertoire.
