Valerie, Lady Solti (1937–2021)

Leeds-born (as Anne Valerie Pitts), Lady Solti enjoyed music but was neither performer or composer. A TV announcer, presenter and actress, she was married to the distinguished conductor Sir Georg Solti from 1967 to 1997 and supported his career; she and her husband also supported young classical musicians though the Solti Foundation. She will also be remembered for her patronage of the World Orchestra for Peace.
