Georg Solti

Most Grammy-winning artist Elvis and McCartney don't hold a candle to the late Georg Solti, former conductor of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. During his life, Solti picked up 31 Grammys, including the lifetime achievement award. He was also listed among the winners for seven more Grammys and nominated an additional 74 times. Solti died in 1997 at the age of 84, just a month before he was scheduled to conduct his 1,000th performance with the orchestra.
