Editorial Reviews

This fantastic documentary celebrates the 100th birthday of Sir Georg Solti, one of the 20th century's most brilliant conductors and a leading figure of musical culture worldwide. His major conducting appointments are central to the film, as are the memories of great musicians like Valery Gergiev, C. von Dohn+¡nyi. A bonus concert with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra shows Solti at the top of his game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting take on a remarkable musical genius January 11, 2013
Verified Purchase
I thought the other film on Solti: Georg Solti, the making of a Maestro was better in that it covered more ground and was also very well done, but I enjoyed this very much and the two are somewhat complimentary. This of course is on Blu and thus has a slightly better picture quality. Solti was a remarkable man, one of many musical genii to come out of Hungary's Jewish community, and surely one of the greatest conductors of all time. His recording of Wagner's Ring has never been equalled in artistic terms even if some of the more recent recordings are better recorded. Hopefully The making of a Maestro will also get a Blu-ray release. This is a fine film that gives much insight into Solti the man.
