In October 2012 music-lovers celebrated the centenary year of one of the world's greatest conductors' (The Independent). This concert a rare gem from the BBC archives shows Sir Georg Solti at the height of his powers with his favourite orchestra, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, of which he was music director from 1969 to 1991, in an alliance that was revered among audiences and critics alike.
Released for the first time on DVD, this concert is the last in Sir Georg Solti and his beloved CSO's European tour in 1985. The Chicago Tribune wrote in January of that year, He (Solti) and the CSO are firmly established as the most leonine mteam in symphonic music today, and that team has had everyone roaring from Stockholm to Zurich.' Solti himself wrote: My term as musical director of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra was the happiest time in my professional life.'
The programme on this DVD features Mozart's Symphony No.39, Tchaikovsky's Symphony No.4, and an encore of Fêtes from Debussy's Nocturnes all performed with the flair, passion and majestic artistry for which Solti was famed.
