Hyperion Records CDA68211 @ £14.25 plus P&P

About the recording …
Howard Shelley’s earlier release of Dussek concertos was described as ‘a real find’ (BBC Music Magazine). This successor is, if anything, even more impressive, culminating in one of the finest unknown piano concertos from the early nineteenth century.
