“When it comes to Minton . . . this is classy, subtle and undemonstrative singing, but no worse for that . . . a fine sample of an outstanding and often underrated singer.” — Gramophone

Beginning on March 26, 1970, Sir Georg Solti and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra began recording Mahler’s Fifth Symphony — their first recording together. Those first sessions also included Mahler’s Sixth Symphony, along with Songs of a Wayfarer and selections from Des Knaben Wunderhorn. Over three weeks, Solti’s recording legacy began, and here, two of the rare, original recordings are immortalized.
