Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Sir Georg Solti, KBE ( 21 October 1912 - 5 September 1997) was a Hungarian-British orchestral and operatic conductor. He was a major classical recording artist, holding the record for having received the most Grammy Awards, having personally won 31 as a conductor, including the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. In addition to his recordings he is probably best known for leading the Chicago Symphony Orchestra from 1969-91. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest conductors of the second half of the 20th century. Solti was born Gy rgy Stern (Hungarian: Stern Gy rgy) in Budapest, Hungary to a Jewish family; his parents were M ric(z) Stern and Ter z Rosenbaum. His cousin was L szl Moholy-Nagy, the Jewish-Hungarian painter and photographer, who taught at the Bauhaus in Dessau and co-founded the New Bauhaus in Chicago. His father Germanized the name Gy rgy to Georg and changed his family name to Solti, to shield them from antisemitism.show more
