The Solti Centenary Concert in Chicago celebrated Sir Georg Solti's 100th birthday on October 21, 2012, featuring the World Orchestra for Peace (WOP). Charmingly hosted by Solti's widow, Lady Valerie Solti, and featuring soloists Angela Gheorghiu and René Pape as well as members of the Georg Solti Accademia, this memorable evening presents musical highlights that played a significant role in Solti's life and career. Conductor Valery Gergiev was a good friend of Solti. Together with Lady Solti and the WOP, he carries on Solti's vision and maintains his memory.
Maestro Valery Gergiev leads the World Orchestra for Peace in a tribute to the late Sir Georg Solti on Friday, October 19 at Carnegie Hall-just two days before the 100th anniversary of the influential conductor's birth. Including footage from Sir Georg Solti's surprise 80th birthday concert at Buckingham Palace in 1992 (which partly inspired him to form the orchestra), this documentary marks the 15th anniversary of the founding of the World Orchestra for Peace by Solti in 1995.
Valery Gergiev conducts the World Orchestra for Peace, the only orchestra which Solti ever founded, made up of players from the world's leading symphony orchestras. Lady Valerie Solti, the conductor's widow, introduces the concert, which features vocal soloists Angela Gheorghiu and Rene Pape and works by Mozart, Verdi, Strauss, Mahler and Bartok which chart the course of Solti's musical career.
