 Update me on new releases by Kentner

Louis Kentner (1905 - 1987)

The son of a Hungarian father and Austrian mother from Vienna, Kentner grew up in a household where the mother was timid and the father overbearing. A child prodigy, he entered the Royal Academy of Music in Budapest at the age of six studying piano with Arnold Székely and composition with Hans Koessler. The young child was not satisfied with these teachers, who fed him a diet of scales and exercises, so when he changed teachers and joined the classes of Leo Weiner for piano and Zoltán Kodály for theory and composition he was much happier. Both became friends to the young man, providing emotional bonds of the type his father was unable to give.
