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, Woelfl and others 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.

This first volume features three of Bohemian virtuoso Jan Ladislav Dussek's eighteen piano concertos, taken from different points in his career. As a group, these pieces are a fascinating study, with most of the earlier works largely reflecting the Mozartian model, and the later ones revealing stylistic traits sometimes at odds with the late eighteenth century conception of the form, and anticipating future developments in the genre. There could be no finer guide to the hidden gems of this repertoire than Howard Shelley, whose recordings of Clementi keyboard works, and Mozart and Hummel piano concertos, have received such acclaim. He appears here as pianist / conductor with the Ulster Orchestra.
