Product description

Product Description

Solti recorded Elgars Symphony No.2 (along with the Cockaigne Overture) on audio around the same time as the Royal Festival Hall performance, to great acclaim. Soltis recordings were always the recommended version of each work he performed he had a deep understanding of the repertoire. This DVD is the first audiovisual recording to feature Solti performing Elgar 2, and has never been released before. The Second Symphony is also a record of the first concert Solti conducted as the London Philharmonics Chief Conductor in 1975. James Mallinson, one of Soltis record producers, commented that his audio recordings of the two Elgar symphonies are probably two of his finest recordings due to his open and fresh approach. Soltis quote at the time of broadcasting the Enigma Variations: I love Elgar, and for me the Enigma Variations is his masterpiece.

Review

Solti's LPO Elgar remains fresh,the passionate vigour of his second Symphony balanced by one of the most loving Enigma variations on disc. Perfomance ***** Picture & Sound *** --BBC music Magazine,July'11

A bracing pair of Elgar performances deservedly rescued from the archives.Both the picture quailty and full-blooded(mono)sound are perfectly acceptable.Most rewarding-and a genuine tonic to boot. --Gramophone,Aug'11
