 Istvan Kertesz' concerts were always a special ex January 4, 2015 By Christine E. L. (Houston, TX) See All My Reviews "I have these recordings on the big black discs from the 1970's and am very happy to acquire them on CD's. I attended concerts conducted by Istvan Kertesz and he proved every time how precisely he adhered to the scores as written by the composers. It was always a delightful and joyful experience to be in the audience with Mr.Kertesz on the podium and it was a sad day when he drowned in Israel at such a young age. I am happy to have this reminder of his musical genius and recall that the orchestra musicians appeared to be especially inspired and played with refinement and joy under his direction." Report Abuse
