    (October 21, 1912-September 5, 1997)
    Birth name was György Solti
    Resided in the U.K.
    Conducted the Chicago Symphony, the London Philharmonic and the Orchestre de Paris
    Specialized in the works of Wagner, Verdi, Mahler, Bartok and Mozart
    Recorded ‘Aïda,’ Mahler’s ‘Symphony #8,’ ‘Der Ring des Nibelungen,’ Tannhäuser,’ ‘Cosí fan tutte,’ the Verdi ‘Requiem,’ ‘Salomé,’ ‘The Marriage of Figaro’ and ‘Lohengrin’
    Knighted (1972)
    He could be sexist and rude.
    He told a female clarinetist to ‘stop playing like a virgin.’
    When he met the soprano Deborah Voigt, the first thing he said was: ‘Why are you so fat?’
    He was a demanding musical ‘boss.’
    Members of his orchestras called him ‘the Screaming Skull.’
    He said he hated conducting Wagner operas because he couldn’t wait that long between trips to the bathroom.
    He was modest.
    Because he was Jewish, he had to flee Hungary when the Nazis took power.
    His heartless comments about Deborah Voigt’s weight inspired her to have gastric bypass surgery, which improved her health.
    He won more Grammy awards than any other person in history.
    One critic described his musical approach as ‘an orgasm in every bar.’
