Editorial Reviews

This album of hitherto unpublished live recordings and rare and in some cases unpublished studio items reflects some of the most vital elements of Sir Georg Solti s life in music over a six-decade period, from 1937 to 1997. It is a centenary testament to his powerful presence, not only as a major influential force in the opera house and concert hall, but also as a discoverer and champion of the very finest young singing talent of his time. In particular it includes many of the leading ladies of opera he believed in and supported, and there is also a concert in which he joins one of his favourite younger pianists. Additionally, some of his chosen singers can be heard with him in a unique rehearsal document that has never appeared before.

The recordings included in this set of CDs derive from a wide variety of sources both live performances and studio recordings recorded over a period of sixty years. Consequently the sound quality is variable but where possible small technical improvements have been made during the mastering process to provide a more enjoyable listening experience.

Of course the sound quality of this recording is variable, but this as an astonishing vocal record of Solti's operatic conducting. Particularly invaluable are all the live excerpts from the Stauss recordings,and particularly the scene from "Otello" with James MacCracken. It was these performances in Europe that brought MacCracken recognition in his own country, and he was the Otello of choice in the 1970s and up to his untimely death.

I would have expected that the recording would have been digitally remastered. I am not sure how the choices were made.

This cd has terrible sound. I was so disappointed that I haven't even bothered to listen to the 2nd cd, and I actually pre-ordered! Waste of money.
