Yes, but before the query parser can even get the query string, the
servlet container parses query args and & is a delimiter.  Hence you
need to escape '&' for the sake of the servlet container.

in the Solr admin interface, I get the correct results.

Right, because the browser knows to escape '&' for you.

You need to escape '&' as %26, since that is how URL escaping works
(it has nothing to do with lucene syntax.)
