As pianist, conductor, and recording artist, Howard Shelley has enjoyed a distinguished career since his highly acclaimed London debut in 1971. Most of his current work is in the combined role of conductor and soloist. This is reflected in a discography that now exceeds 160 albums and the works of over 70 composers. On his latest project, Shelley is joined by the London Mozart Players in music by Johann Baptist Cramer, one of the leading pianists of the first half of the 19th century. A prolific composer, Cramer is remembered for his piano studies, which, like his playing, were highly regarded by Beethoven.
