Borodin:

Glinka:

Mussorgsky:

Khovanshchina: Prelude

(completed and orchestrated by Rimsky-Korsakov)

A Night on the Bare Mountain

(arranged Rimsky-Korsakov)


“A sizzling account of Borodin's Polovtsian Dances is the centrepiece here. Glinka's Ruslan and Lyudmila Overture is equally electrifying, yet there is tenderness, too, in Musorgsky's Khovanshchina Prelude. Solti fires up vintage LSO/Kingsway Hall performances.” BBC Music Magazine, August 2006 *****

“This arrangement by Rimsky-Korsakov (the serene ending to the piece is nowhere to be found in Mussorgsky's original, and actually uses music from his opera Sorochintsy Fair) is the version [of Night on a Bare Mountain] most familiar to many. Georg Solti conducts the London Symphony Orchestra in a vivid performance full of heaving lower strings and snarling brass.” James Longstaffe, Presto Classical, September 2014

Shostakovich:

Symphony No. 13 in B flat minor, Op. 113 'Babi Yar'

Symphony No. 15 in A major, Op. 141


Solti came late in life to the music of Shostakovich, and in his introduction to the recording of the Thirteenth Symphony (reprinted in the booklet) explains the music's effect on him. These rare recordings have long been out of the catalogue, and are now issued as a 2CD set at super-budget price. Sergei Aleksashkin is the commanding bass in the Thirteenth and in the Mussorgsky songs, and Sir Anthony Hopkins intersperses Yevtushenko poems in this unique recording.

Solti: Journey of a lifetime

Celebrating the 100th birthday of Sir Georg Solti


Mussorgsky:

Khovanshchina: Prelude

Prokofiev:

Symphony No. 1 in D major, Op. 25 'Classical'

Shostakovich:

Symphony No. 1 in F minor, Op. 10


This fantastic documentary, from the director of the very successful DVD Carlos Kleiber - I am lost to the world, celebrates the 100th birthday of Sir Georg Solti. He was one of the 20th Century’s most brilliant conductors and a leading figure of musical culture world-wide.

The documentary follows the Hungarian-Jewish conductor’s career: As Toscanini’s assistant at the Salzburg Festival, as Music Director in Munich and Frankfurt after the war, achieving world-wide fame with his legendary recording of Wagner’s Ring cycle. It was as the long-serving Music Director at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, and of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra that Solti became an international start of classical music.

These stops form the central points of the film. Many great musicians like Valery Gergiev and Dohnànyi have great memories to share.

“Solti is a documentary director's dream...there is always so much to look at even when he's sitting still..There is much skilfully sequenced archive footage...even if the director finds it hard to linger on his subject doing what he did best.” Gramophone Magazine, January 2013

“Talking heads opine that Solti's career only soared after Bohm retired and Karajan died...it does provide some remarkable anecdotes...such as Solti becoming great cronies with Theodor Adorno...Most significantly, though, this also includes a solid sample of everyday Solti.” BBC Music Magazine, May 2013 ****

“Contributions are intelligent and interesting and there is thankfully little by way of padding. There is some linking narration and the occasional musical extract...I found the 52 minutes of this film compulsive viewing and was only sorry there wasn't more of it.” MusicWeb International, 21st May 2013

Symphony No. 2 in B minor

Mussorgsky:

Khovanshchina: Prelude

Pictures at an Exhibition

orchestrated by Ravel

Shostakovich:

Polka from The Golden Age, Op. 22


A beautiful document of the outstanding contribution Sir Simon Rattle has made to the music world in his work with one of the greatest orchestras, the Berliner Philharmoniker.

A perfect choice of programme: The best-known symphonic works of Borodin and Mussorgsky with immediate visceral impact on the audience.

The wonderful encore, Shostakovich´s Polka from The Golden Age is announced by Sir Simon Rattle as crazy – it represents the prolonging of the process of modernization set in motion by Borodin and Mussorgsky.

A feast for music lovers.

The second Blu-ray Disc of Sir Simon Rattle and the Berliner Philharmoniker on EuroArts.

"The musicians are very articulate, they are very open, they are very curious. They always want to know why we are doing something. They don't just do it – they are not an obedient orchestra in that way, but they are a very creative orchestra.” Sir Simon Rattle

“…is a sophisticated Russian New Year's Eve event from Berlin. …the impression remains that Rattle brings off the subtler, more atmospheric passages best.” BBC Music Magazine, July 2009 ****

“Technically speaking this is an outstanding issue…picture quality and colour balance are exceptional…the sound-picture [is] clear and truthfully balanced…The Berlin Philharmonic's playing is as impressive as ever…Simon Rattle is as charismatic as ever…it is a joy to watch him engaging so obviously with Borodin's languorous Oriental melodies” International Record Review
