Howard Shelley continues his survey of Hummel’s works for piano and orchestra and this disc features the premiere recording of Le Retour à Londres.

Howard Shelley has a large and acclaimed discography on Chandos and is acknowledged as a leading exponent of keyboard repertoire from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

“All these pieces, plus the purely orchestral variations on the tune of ‘O du lieber Augustin’ (which curiously throws in a ‘Turkish’ percussion ensemble), are vividly performed by the London Mozart Players, while pianist Howard Shelley throws off Hummel’s copious cascades of notes with appropriate panache.” (BBC Music Magazine)

“Howard Shelley has been systematically recording Hummel’s works for piano and orchestra for Chandos. Each one has been highly rated in these pages and this one is no different. The recording is superb, the notes are good, and the playing is outstanding.” (American Record Guide)

“Shelley…is outstanding in this music, synthesizing the classical and romantic elements perfectly. A natural Mozartian, he allies his poise and clarity to a fearless technique, and absorbs Hummel’s most ostentatious demands into the musical fabric, giving the decorative solo part the necessary grace and piquancy.” (Gramophone)
