Howard Shelley (Piano)

Born: 9th March 1950, London, England

Nationality: English

Since his highly successful Wigmore Hall debut in 1971 and a televised debut at the Promenade Concerts in the same season, Howard Shelley has consolidated his position as one of Britain's most outstanding artists, performing regularly in London's major concert halls and touring extensively abroad. As a pianist he has been soloist under the baton of such distinguished conductors as Ashkenazy, Boult, Davis, Downes, Gibson, Groves, Herbig, Marriner, Sanderling, Thomson, Weller and Jansons, and has given performances of important contemporary works with Pierre Boulez. Several composers have written concertos especially for him, all of which he has performed and broadcast.
