Sir Georg Solti — Conductor

Program notes

The Making of a Maestro is a documentary that looks at the influential conductor Sir Georg Solti.

Few other figures in the 20th century can claim to have stamped their authority on their field with such gusto as Solti, who will long be remembered - thanks to both his exceptional recordings, and the numerous interviews in which he comes across as both informative and entertaining.

Producer Peter Maniura paints a portrait of Solti at various different stages of his international career. The famous conductor was to pass away just weeks before the first broadcasting of this documentary on English television in 1997. Solti was in his 85th year.
