"A Mozartian in the Curzon class, with a grace and capacity for spontaneous and deep feeling that can only be wondered at."
"Shelley is one of the most accomplished pianist-directors in Mozart. His attention to balance within and between the instrumental groups was as pertinent in the Mozart as it was in the purely orchestral symphonies of Haydn."
"Shelley war in der Doppelfunktion des Solisten und Dirigenten gefordert, die er mit frappierender Sicherheit bewältigte."
(Shelley pulled off his role as soloist and conductor with overwhelming assuredness)
Howard Shelley is available as conductor, conductor/soloist or solo pianist [and in a two-piano partnership with Hilary Macnamara]
