Great Conductors: Georg Solti

Radio-Sinfonieorchester Stuttgart
Georg Solti

This recording provides us with a portrait of a man whose conducting technique contrasts fascinatingly with that of the other conductors in the "Great Conductors" series. Sir Georg Solti's rehearsal and performance of Wagner's Tannhäuser Overture with the Süddeutsche Rundfunk Symphony Orchestra is a fine illustration of this conductor's insistence on absolute precision, his engergetic style and his close familiarity with the score.
