CSO Resound - Mahler 2

“While being ever loyal to the score, Haitink made each choice of tempo, rhythm, volume, massing and color seem almost shocking.”

Bio - Bernard Haitink

With an international conducting career that has spanned more than five decades, Amsterdam-born Bernard Haitink is one of today’s most celebrated conductors. Read more > 

Sir Georg Solti

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.
