Georg Solti

About

Decca presents the third in a trilogy of Solti releases which compliments the Solti/Chicago & Solti/London boxed sets ... Solti (in) Europe.

Containing 45 CDs + 2 DVDs from his very first recording on Decca (as a pianist in 1947) to his last studio album made three months before his death (which were his very first recordings made in his native Hungary with Hungarian musicians).

Highlights include:

- Soltiís first recordings on Decca as a pianist accompanying violinist Georg Kulenkampff: Brahmsís Violin Sonatas, Mozart Violin Sonata in B flat major, K454, and Beethovenís ďKreutzerĒ Sonata.

- Beguiling accounts of Tchaikovskyís Second and Fifth Symphonies with the Orchestre de Paris.

- Three recordings with the Berliner Philharmoniker including a dashing live account of Beethovenís Missa solemnis.

- Mahlerís Fourth Symphony with the Concertgebouw Orchestra from 1961 and a thrilling Rite of Spring and Shostakovichís First Symphony caught live in performance made 30 years later.

- Countless benchmark recordings made in the Sofiensaal in Vienna including the 1967 recording of Verdiís Requiem which was producer John Culshawís last Decca recording. The recorded sound has scarcely been bettered since.

- The potent demonstration disc of orchestral excerpts from The Ring, in glorious Decca digital sound, Soltiís last orchestral recording made at the Sofiensaal of Mozartís Piano Quartets, K478 & K493, with members of the Melos Quartet.

- The 1995 UN 50th Anniversary Concert with Soltiís World Orchestra for Peace, on CD & DVD.

- Mozartís Requiem recorded live in Viennaís Stephansdsom on the 200th anniversary of the composerís birth.

- Soltiís last live recording with the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra of Mahlerís Fifth Symphony. In what proved to be one of the last concerts before his death, Solti presided over an interpretation that tempers immense power with yearning introspection.

Includes a bonus audio documentary produced by Jon Tolansky with contributions from Angela Gheorghiu, Kiri Te Kanawa, Clemens Hellsberg (former violinist and Chairman of the Wiener Philharmoniker), Dr Michael Haas (former Decca Producer) and Charles Kaye (Director and General Manager of the World Orchestra for Peace), amongst others.

The recordings are accompanied by a 80pp book (En/Fr/De) with new notes by Andrew Stewart.

Two-piece capbox, 80pp booklet, 45CD + 2DVDs, original jackets.
