Recorded: September 2013, Ulster Hall, Belfast, United Kingdom. Misha Donat, BBC Music Magazine: Having explored the byways of the Romantic piano concerto repertoire for Hyperion, the indefatigable Howard Shelley is now turning his attention to neglected examples of the genre from the Classical period. The three concertos by Dussek.
This album marks its second set of piano concertos by the Czech composer Jan Ladislav Dussek (1760-1812), again with Howard Shelley as soloist and conductor from the keyboard of the Ulster Orchestra. All 3 concertos make for nice and enjoyable listening. The op. 49 concerto is unusual in being in a minor key (G minor), but even with that, Dussek doesn't go for any sort of "Sturm und Drang" type of melodrama, but remains genial.
Having found unexpected success with its series of unknown Romantic piano concertos, Hyperion launched a similar series focusing on the Classical period with this release in 2014. It's a very auspicious start.

Jan Ladislav Dussek (baptized Jan Václav Dusík, with surname also written as Duschek or Düssek; 12 February 1760 – 20 March 1812) was a Czech composer and pianist. He was an important representative of Czech music abroad in the second half of the 18th century and the beginning of the 19th century. Some of his more forward-looking piano works have traits often associated with Romanticism.
Howard Shelley and the Ulster Orchestra return for a second volume in Hyperion’s new Classical Piano Concerto series. Daniel Steibelt-the man who dared to challenge Beethoven and lost-ruled the keyboards of northern Europe for a quarter of a century, his own concertos as sensationally popular as their composer was ostentatious. Having apparently completed a gigantic series of little-known Romantic piano concerto recordings for Hyperion, pianist Howard Shelley has turned to the Classical era. This, the second release in the Classical series, is a nice find. The pianist/composer Daniel Steibelt.
