About

Going by his discographical track-record, Antal Doráti (1906-1988) was probably the busiest conductor after the end of World War II. He was a studio partner to greats of the concert halls such as Rubinstein, Menuhin, Milstein and Janis, and his recording of Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture from Minneapolis with church-bells and a real bronze cannon set a yet unbeaten sales record.

You can hear all of this and more in this 10-CD set, which encompasses the incredible range of repertoire of a conductor, who was gifted with a fantastic memory. Doráti’s teachers were Bartók and Kodály at the Budapest Academy of Music.
