Bartók, Romanian Folk Dances

Sir Georg Solti was an exclusive artist of Unitel for many years, and
during this time a large part of his vast repertoire was recorded for
television with "his" orchestra, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. With great
awe and respect, Unitel joined forces with the maestro once again in 1995
to record a concert with the Vienna Philharmonic in which Solti paid homage
to his native Hungary, to his roots and his teachers, the Hungarians
Kodály, Bartók and Weiner. Of course, in a concert featuring dazzling music
from the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the Rakoczy March in Berlioz's
arrangement could not be omitted. The second part of the concert is devoted
to Beethoven, who was not Hungarian but had been adopted by Hungary's
Austrian neighbors. The concert is Unitel's last recording with the great
artist, who died on 5 September 1997.
