Bio - Sir Georg Solti

Born October 21, 1912, Budapest, Hungary.
Died September 5, 1997, Antibes, France.

Music Director (1969-1991)
Music Director Laureate (1991-1997)

Sir Georg Solti was born in Budapest in 1912 and studied piano, composition, and conducting with Bartók, Dohnányi, Kodály, and Leo Weiner. Although he made his concert debut as a pianist, the Budapest Opera soon engaged him as a conductor. In 1937 Toscanini selected him as his assistant at the Salzburg Festival. Before the outbreak of World War II, Solti went to Switzerland as a refugee, turning again to the piano for his livelihood, and in 1942 he won first prize in the Concours International in Geneva.
