If only more pianists today could make the instrument sing like Kentner.
The pioneering Liszt recordings (1937-41)
Ballade 2 • Scherzo & March • Berceuse • Polonaise 1
Bénédiction de Dieu • Hungarian Rhapsodies 2 & 9
This glorious recital is a timely reminder of Louis Kentner's greatness, his richness and enterprise during his heyday. Here is playing which in its life-affirming sweep and opulence makes accusations concerning Liszt's theatricality doubly misleading... These performances show a patrician ease that makes you...sit back and marvel. Gramophone (UK)APR5514 Available as a Digital Download or to Stream only
