Solti only recorded the work once with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra
and it was in 1984 as I recall attending the January1984 concerts which
immediatley preceded the recording sessions. As an aside to the ongoing
Repeat listings, Solti did not observe the first movement repeat in the
live performance but it is taken in the recording. He does the same thing
with his performances of the Brahms symphonies.
