GEORG SOLTI - IN REHEARSAL
Richard WAGNER: Tannhauser Overture - Rehearsal and Performance;
Suddeutsches Rundfunk Sinfonie Orchester, Georg Solti
PAL 101 068
Running Time: 87 mins
Conducted by Sir Georg Solti, widely regarded as the world's finest conductor, with more Grammy awards to his name than any other artist, these performances demonstrate his conducting skill and great interpretative vision.
These rare black and white recordings produced in 1966 and 1968, during his time as music director at Covent Garden, show how Solti's amiable but insistent leadership in rehearsal with the Suddeutsche Rundfunk Sinfonie Orchester Stuttgart turns Wagner's Tannhäuse Overture and Berlioz's Hungarian March into a sharpened and haunting performance.
