RE: I am not a Solti s "fan", and this are my reasons!!

Dear Naupilus, of course you are excused!, this is only a conversation, personally I dont remember when was the last time I listened the Ninth, could be perfectly 5 or 7 years, but its always be there, waiting for the ocassion. Something different happens to me with Mozarts symphonies or piano concertos, I listen it -I say- almost every day, or with Brahms s symphonies or piano concertos, specially the 3rd symphony or 1rst piano concerto, other work that I listen frecuently is "Ma vlast" cycle in Vaclac Smetacek s or Kdenek Kosler versions. I think is also a problem of affinity with the music or the interpreters, I prefer absolutely the great conductors or performers from the past, like Geza Anda,Erich Leinsdorf (in Mozarts symphonies), Brahms s symphonies in William Steinberg-Pittsburgh versions, from MCA classics, before Command label, etc, etc, Rims Korsakovs Scheherazade in Hermann Scherchen or Igor Markevitchs versions, an recently Bruchs Nº 1 violin concerto with Heifetz-Sargent 1951 version or Tchaikosvsky s violin concerto with Heifetz-Walter Susskind, that comes with an electrifyng Sarazate s  "Zigeunerweisen" version, in NAXOSs Historical editions, that I recommend to you ardently!.

Solti

Solti was a great conductor and musician. What he did was always musical, extremely musical. The problem was that it wasn't always natural.
