CRITIC REVIEW:

“Many of Louis Kentner's early recordings have remained among my most treasured musical possessions....a luxuriant stylist who could touch off much of his vast repertoire with dazzling musical and technical aplomb....you will surely rejoice in a souvenir of true musical glory.”

- Bryce Morrison, GRAMOPHONE, Nov., 2007



“Since [Kentner’s] death in 1987, a number of CDs have been issued that demonstrate his greatness during the 1930s and 1940s, but none has done it so eloquently as [the above] blistering accounts of the Lyapunov studies. A landmark recording in its time, it remains so 50 years on….and although made in 1949, the 78rpm discs were left unissued until October, 1951, quickly deleted and never transferred to LP….documenting some of his finest playing – remaining virtually unknown.”

- Jonathan Dobson, CLASSIC RECORD COLLECTOR, Spring, 2002
