The Solti Centenary Concert in Chicago celebrated Sir Georg Soltis 100th birthday on October 21, 2012, featuring the World Orchestra for Peace. This unique ensemble owes its existence to the vision of its founder, Sir Georg Solti, who believed passionately in peace and the power of music and musicians to be ambassadors for peace.
Charmingly hosted by Soltis widow, Lady Valerie Solti, and featuring soloists such as Angela Gheorghiu and Rene Pape as well as members of the Georg Solti Accademia, this memorable evening presents musical highlights, all of which played a significant role in Soltis life and career. Besides excerpts from Mozarts Le Nozze di Figaro, Die Zauberflote and Don Giovanni or Verdis La Traviata and Rigoletto, this concert finds lovely musical moments in the Adagietto from Mahlers Fifth Symphony, Strauss Don Juan and Bartoks masterful Concerto for Orchestra. Sousas Stars and Stripes Forever as the encore closes the performance with a smash.
Conductor Valery Gergiev was a good friend of his advisor Georg Solti. Together with Lady Valerie Solti and the World Orchestra For Peace he carries on Soltis vision and maintains his memory.
