As with many composers whose work has taken them into diverse musical fields, the range of his accomplishments has tended to draw attention away from what lies at the heart of his output his serious music, less extensive than that of his more commercial work, but which as the concertos on this disc amply demonstrate is of a quality and achievement manifestly deserving of far greater recognition than it has received hitherto.
Shaws serious output contains two operas and two further concertos (for viola and for harpsichord), but within his concert music, his piano concertos have to be considered as being amongst the most greatly significant contributions to the genre by any British composer of the last six decades fully the equal of more well-known examples such as those by Rawsthorne (No.2), Rubbra, Tippett, Bennett, Hoddinott and McCabe.
