AN UNCONDITIONAL TRIUMPH
Worcester Festival, Oct. 9, 1924
Mr. Kindler's admirable playing of the Roccoco Variations of Tschaikowsky was an admirable exhibition for the artist and an unconditional triumph.
Olin Downes, New York Times, Oct. 10, 1924.
'CELLIST IS TRIUMPHANT AT WORCESTER
Hans Kindler, the distinguished Dutch 'cellist, scored a distinct personal triumph when he played the Variations on a Roccoco Theme. Seldom does one hear so great a variety of tone color as he draws from his instrument. He was recalled time and again by the large and enthusiastic audience.
Springfield Union, Oct. 10, 1924.
Regarding Hans Kindler's playing it would be a pleasure to go on for a column or two. Suffice it to say that the audience manifested their delight at his unmatched artistry by giving him no less than half a dozen recalls. He possesses an apparently flawless technique, a beautiful smooth tone and a musical sense that only a great artist can boast of.
Worcester Telegram, Oct. 10, 1924.
Pittsfield Festival, Sept. 19, 1924
Man by man Mr. Kindler came nearest to pervading sensuous beauty. From the music and the instrument he drew the grave, mellow autumnal voice, the long drawn brooding phrases, the wistful cadences that wait also in Brahms' measures for horns. When, moreover, the pages were a progress of thought rather than a release of mood, Mr. Kindler failed not in warming glow.
H. T. Parker, Boston Transcript, Sept. 20, 1924.
Hans Kindler gave a noble performance of the Brahms sonata in F major, opus 99, the two middle movements of which were especially lovely.
Springfield Republican, Sept. 20, 1924.
