Georg Solti

Haydn: Symphonies 100, 102, 103. Mozart: Symphonies 25 & 38; Eine Kleine Nachtmusik (2CD)

As part of the Eloquence series of early Solti recordings, this 2CD set features the conductor in music by Haydn and Mozart, recorded between 1949 and 1958. The 1949 recording of Haydn’s ‘Drum Roll’ Symphony and the 1958 recording of Mozart’s ‘Eine kleine Nachtmusik’ (recorded in spatial early stereo) make their first international appearances on Decca CD. Solti re-recorded the three Haydn symphonies heard here, again with the London Philharmonic, adding the remaining ‘London’ Symphonies, between 1981 and 1991 in stereo. Likewise, he re-recorded the Mozart ‘Prague’ in 1981 as part of a set of the composer’s four last symphonies with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. The fiery, passionate account of the G minor, KV 183 and the stereo ‘Eine kleine Nachtmusik‘ are his only recording of these works.
