Sir George Solti, one of the greatest conductors of our day, died on 5th September 1997.

The definitive profile “Solti – The making of a Maestro”, made during the last year of his life, captures the amazing energy and passion for music of this remarkable man. Filmed with Solti in Budapest, Bavaria, Chicago and London, the documentary charts his exceptional musical journey; from his early years in Hungary to his accalaimed leadership of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. A film by renowned director Peter Maniura, coproduced with the BBC.

Solti was a most energetic conductor in both rehearsal and performance, with a frequently sharp and stabbing conducting style. At the same time he was also capable of producing the most beautiful legato playing.

No Solti recording is without some point of interest: his stature as one of the most outstanding conductors of the twentieth century is fully confirmed through this legacy.

As one of the greatest conductors of the 20th century, his readings of the major composers of classical music have often been referred to.
