“Kentner’s playing...is very strongly characterized. His tone is lucent, but with slowish tempi, allowing the music to unfold spaciously, the effect is of a dark lucidity...A souvenir of a conductor and orchestra that had something of its own to offer even in a city where the likes of Beecham, Klemperer, Boult and countless more were regularly plying their wares... It doesn’t sound its age.” MusicWeb International, August 2012
