Chris Morgan
Scene Magazine, November 2013

Georg Solti’s legacy in 20th century music can’t be understated. Renowned for his intensity and high standards, Solti…surmounted the oppressive political climate of his early career…to become one of the world’s best-known orchestra conductors. He earned a reputation for reconstituting failing music organizations; both the Covent Garden Opera Company in London and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra were essentially saved by Solti’s uncompromising commitment to quality live music. Peppered with numerous interviews with friends, admirers, collaborators, confidants and Solti himself, this immaculately produced BBC documentary is an unflinching yet affectionate portrait of one man re-making the world in his image. © 2013 Scene Magazine Read complete review

Lawrence Hansen
American Record Guide, July 2013

Technically, the video production is just fine…crisp and clear and smoothly edited.

…if you’ve heard some of [Solti’s] recordings and want to know more about the man behind them, this program is a fine place to start. © 2013 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide

Robert Benson, March 2013

Of the many tributes to conductor Sir Georg Solti…one of the most important is this hour-long film by Andy King-Dabbs that traces the famous Hungarian’s career right from the beginning…A fascinating film clip shows Solti rehearsing his first Rosenkavalier in Vienna…We have interviews with many famous artists who worked with Solti…We also have many opportunities to watch the conductor in action on the podium, a churning dynamo of flailing motion…This is an enjoyable and important documentary. © 2013 Read complete review
