Antal Dorati

Going by his discographical track-record, Antal Dorati (1906 - 1988) was probably the busiest conductor after the end of World War II. He was a studio partner to greats of the concert halls such as Rubinstein, Menuhin, Milstein or Janis, and his recording of Tchaikovsky's "1812" overture from Minneapolis with church-bells and a real bronze cannon set a yet unbeaten sales record. You can hear all of this and more in this 10-CD set, which encompasses the incredible range of repertoire of a conductor, who was gifted with a fantastic memory. Dorati's teachers were Bartók and Kodály at the Budapest Academy of Music. In 1924 he became the youngest band master in the history of the Budapest Opera, then assisted Fritz Busch in Dresden, came to the Ballets Russes in Monte Carlo via Münster, later became the music director of the American Ballet Theater in New York, created the Symphony Orchestra of Dallas and was chief conductor in Minneapolis from 1949 to 1960. Other stops along his career path were Washington, Detroit, Stockholm and, time and again, London.
