Another classic concert from the Past Daily Vaults. This week it’s the opening concert of the 1977-1978 season of the Chicago Symphony conducted by the legendary Sir Georg Solti.

No soloists and a pretty straight-forward program. But still, it’s Solti and with him it was always exciting.

So here’s what’s on the players:

Top Player:

1. Rossini – Barber of Seville Overture

2. Shostakovich – Symphony Number 1

Bottom Player:

1. Richard Strauss: Death and Transfiguration

2. Richard Strauss: Don Juan

Since it’s not an overseas concert, all the announcements are in English and given by the venerable Norman Pellegrini.

 

Not sure how much of an Anti-Road Rage Wednesday concert this winds up being, but it makes for good listening just the same.

 

Enjoy.
