BALAKIREV: Piano Sonata / LISZT: Apres une lecture du Dante (Kentner) (1938-1951)

Described in 1987 by Yehudi Menuhin as “one of the most generously cultivated of men… He is a musician gifted with enormous talent, both creative to composer and executive – a wonderful pianist”, Louis Kentner settled in Britain where he quickly distinguished himself for his daring and monumental piano recitals. He gave the European première of Bartók’s Third Piano Concerto and, as these recordings testify, was a devoted and untiring advocate for the music of Liszt. His recordings of Csárdás Macabre and En Rêve were the very first to appear on disc. Kentner also championed Mili Balakirev whose Sonata in B flat minor here receives its first recording: “Louis Kentner plays the work superbly, with all the requisite virtuosity yet without any lack of delicate poetic insight” (The Gramophone, August 1951).
