DUSSEK: The Classical Piano Concerto, Volume 1
DUSSEK: The Classical Piano Concerto [Shelley, H]
Howard Shelley | Ulster Orchestra
Following on from Hyperion’s hugely popular ‘Romantic Piano Concerto’ series, the ‘Classical Piano Concerto’ focuses on the lesser-known concertos from the dawn of the genre. Between about 1770 and 1820 - the high classical period dominated by Mozart, Haydn and Beethoven - musicians including Clementi, Cramer, Dussek, Steibelt and Woelfl made their names as composers and performers of piano concertos. This series aims to be the first in-depth recorded survey of this forgotten repertoire.
