Solti is at his most dynamic in this set of performances from Japan. For "Pictures At an Exhibition" there is a most
charming extra with Sir Georg rehearsing the players. These performances were produced toward the end of his
life and it is wonderful to see some of the long-time players still with him, some now with gray hair, etc. That BRASS
section? A miracle of sonic beauty. Unfortunately, Sony did not see fit to include ANY liner notes or other "extras".
Also, there are no sound format choices, something I find very helpful.
As a rabid fan of Solti, I could watch this man eat a bowl of soup and be thrilled. Granted, some people object to his
flamboyant way of conducting, but I prefer his methods to the dry and boring fuddy-duddies out there.
