As pianist, conductor and recording artist Howard Shelley has enjoyed a distinguished career since his highly acclaimed London debut in 1971, performing with renowned orchestras around the world.
He has been closely associated with the music of Rachmaninov and has performed and recorded complete cycles of that composer's solo piano works, concertos and songs. His discography now exceeds a landmark 150 CDs, all highly acclaimed. He has appeared in several television documentaries, including 'Mother Goose', a documentary on Ravel which won a Gold Medal at the New York Festivals Awards.
Since his conducting debut in 1985 he has worked with all the major London orchestras and many other symphony orchestras including the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, RTE National Symphony, Ulster Orchestra, Hong Kong Philharmonic, Singapore Symphony, Seattle Symphony, Naples Philharmonic, City of Mexico Philharmonic and Orchestra della Svizzera Italiana in Switzerland. He has toured to Australia for over thirty consecutive years, performing now as both conductor and soloist with the Melbourne Symphony, Adelaide Symphony and Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra - with the latter he has recorded fifteen volumes (and rising) for Hyperion's Romantic Piano series. Much of his current work is now in this combined role with major chamber orchestras.
His long association with the London Mozart Players has now been recognised by the title of Conductor Laureate. Shelley has also been Principal Conductor of Sweden's Uppsala Chamber Orchestra.
