Journey of a Lifetime traces the life and work of Sir Georg Solti on the 100th anniversary of his birth. We follow the conductor’s growing career as Toscanini’s assistant at the Salzburg Festival, as music director in Munich and Frankfurt after the war, achieving worldwide fame with his legendary Vienna Philharmonic recording of Wagner’s Ring cycle. It was as the long-serving music director of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden and of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra that Solti became an international star of classical music.
