CD of the week: Howard Shelley

This week's pick is a collection of Romantic classics from Howard Shelley.

Howard Shelley is a versatile musician.  A few weeks ago, a set of Haydn symphonies with him as conductor was our CD of the Week; now, it's the turn of Shelley the pianist to shine.
On this new recording, he's joined by the Orchestra of Opera North - who he directs from the keyboard - to perform some of the best-loved piano concertos in the repertoire by Grieg , Schumann and Saint-Saens.  Interestingly, this is the first time all three have been made available together on disc.
