British record label Hyperion's Romantic Piano Concerto series (RPC), which now tops 60 titles and has restored public knowledge in composers such as Sauer, Huss, Dreyschock and Benedict, is being joined by a Classical Piano Concerto series.

The RPC line has already produced offshoots in series themed on cello and violin concertos, but it is the original that has gained most momentum – and awards. 'Series do work for Hyperion,' says Simon Perry, the label's managing director.

The classical version launches this month with Howard Shelley directing the Ulster Orchestra in works by Dušek. A second volume, with the same performers focusing on Daniel Steibelt – who is principally known for losing out to Beethoven in a test of keyboard virtuosity – is in the can, but current plans are for one Classical Piano Concerto release a year. To ensure the series' appeal remains broad, performers will play on modern rather than period instruments. And Perry hopes it will attract new soloists to the label, as the Romantic series has.

He also believes there are riches to be rediscovered. 'If you look at the classical period, it is dominated by Haydn and Mozart, but there were a lot of others, such as Clementi and Dušek, who were performing, travelling and writing their own concertos. Dušek wrote 18 concertos!'
