Description

A collection of some of Solti's greatest Bartók recordings with the London Symphony and Chicago Symphony orchestras. The much requested 1964 LSO reading of Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta is finally released internationally on CD. This release forms part of a mini-series on Eloquence of, in the main, Solti's early recordings. Georg Solti studied piano with Bartók and although they never developed a close personal relationship, Solti was always in awe of the composer's dedication and intensity. In 1937 he was also page-turner for the first performance of the Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion given by the composer and his wife, Ditta Bartók-Pasztory. Bartók's music featured regularly in Solti's concert programs and he recorded the Concerto for Orchestra, Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta and The Miraculous Mandarin again with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. The Dance Suite was also recorded in an earlier version with the London Philharmonic Orchestra in 1952 one of his earliest orchestral discs. While, fundamentally, Solti did not change his approach to much of the music he conducted through his career, the freshness and excitement of these early London performances is to be treasured. The 1963 recording of Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta appears internationally on Decca CD for the first time. This release forms part of a mini-series on Eloquence of, in the main, Solti's early recordings. This is the first time on CD for the Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta.
