The 'superconductor' Georg Solti was awarded 31 Grammy Awards including the
Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.
Solti was born Gyorgy Stern in Budapest, where he learned the piano and studied
at the Franz Liszt Academy of Music. His father Germanized young Gyorgy's given
name to Georg and changed his family name to Solti, to shield his son from
anti-Semitism. By 1935, he was gaining recognition as a conductor, and made his
debut at the Budapest Opera in 1938 with The Marriage of Figaro. In 1939, with
German invasion imminent, he fled Hungary because of his Jewish ancestry, and
moved to Switzerland, where he continued a career as a pianist but had limited
opportunities to develop his conducting.
After the war, Solti was music director of the Bavarian State Orchestra in
Munich and of the Frankfurt Opera. In 1951, he made his debut at the Salzburg
Festival conducting Mozart's Indomeneo.
His career assignments include music director at the Royal Opera House, Covent
Garden from 1961-1971; was awarded an honorary Order of the British Empire in
1971; in 1994 he directed the "Solti Orchestral Project" at Carnegie Hall;
director of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra from 1969-1991 where he was made the
first and only Music Director Laureate in that orchestra's history; he was music
director of the Orchestre de Paris from 1972-1975; principal conductor of the
London Philharmonic Orchestra from 1979-1983. Solti never truly retired and his
sudden death in 1997 means several years of planned performances and recording
projects would never be realized.
