This year is the centenary of the birth of Sir Georg Solti, one of the outstanding conductors of the twentieth century. Born in Budapest in 1912, he attended the Liszt Academy as a pupil of Bartok, Kodaly and Dohnanyi. He had an international career including music directorships of the Munich, Frankfurt, Paris and Covent Garden opera houses, and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. He recorded for Decca - his greatest achievement with the company being Wagner's Ring. The tribute to Solti will include his annotated scores, letters, photographs and memorabilia, some of which will be seen for the first time.
