    Which Solti Fritz? The CSO or the VPO. Both have their highs and lows. I would personally give the second outing the edge.

    Not exactly sure, but at the prices it is going for I would have to be extremely confident that it was a set I really wanted.

    I have the CSO Solti. I think my decision at that time was based partly on price and partly on it has several of the same cast as the DVD I had watched.

    I see that Opera Depot is offering it a a cheaper rate, though I don't know how the sound compares to the Arts Music release.

    They sometimes have a sound clip but you can only tell much from a small sample. Also prefer to buy the commercial release when possible. Maybe it is on You Tube where I could at least give it a listen.
