'Excellently transferred from 78s dating from 1939-59, this selection ranges from Liszt’s early exuberance to the grim-faced austerity of his final years, and throughout you will hear playing of a peerless scintillation, patrician command and a poetic engagement known to few pianists' (Gramophone)» More

'Kentner, a 'great-grandpupil' of the composer, offers Liszt that is aristocratic and technically exquisite—La leggierezza and La campanella as light as sound itself. Colour and sonority are magically imagined' (BBC Music Magazine)
