Elgar: Symphony No. 2
Solti recorded Elgar’s Symphony No.2 (along with the Cockaigne Overture) on audio around the same time as the Royal Festival Hall performance, to great acclaim. Solti’s 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 Philharmonic’s Chief Conductor in 1975.
James Mallinson, one of Solti’s 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.
Solti’s quote at the time of broadcasting the Enigma Variations: “I love Elgar, and for me the Enigma Variations is his masterpiece.”
