Columbia Symphony Orchestra

Biography

The Columbia Symphony Orchestra was a name associated with numerous ensembles recording at differing times for Columbia Information. The name itself was an artifact from a period where record brands and radio systems assembled and called their very own orchestras, or utilized the name like a “cover” for the usage of an orchestra which was contracted somewhere else. The Columbia Symphony Orchestra name was utilized by Columbia Masterworks in the 1950s on NY documenting classes with an orchestra filled with users of the brand new York Philharmonic, the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, as well as the NBC Symphony. The label could hire users of these orchestras as freelance players, assemble an orchestra just as effective as (as well as perhaps much better than) the brand new York Philharmonic, and spend them for his or her work and never have to spend royalties against product sales towards the Philharmonic or the players apart from the conductor or soloist. This orchestra — since it made an appearance on monaural recordings created by Bruno Walter in NY between 1954 and early 1956, with various other New York-based conductors in to the early 1960s — was an excellent ensemble, a match for the Philharmonic within the studio room. Indeed, perhaps one of the most extremely acclaimed and best-selling recordings by Leonard Bernstein in the Columbia label — of George Gershwin’s An American In Paris — was a Columbia Symphony Orchestra documenting. Nevertheless, the Columbia Orchestra, which made an appearance on Bruno Walter’s stereo system recordings from 1957 onward, was different things and very particular. Walter (1876-1962) got retired at age group 80 following a extremely successful career saving with the brand new York Philharmonic, where he offered as musical consultant from 1947 to 1949, so when a frequent visitor conductor on the pursuing seven years. In 1957, while surviving in California, he was contacted by Columbia’s professionals with a fresh proposal. Told from the development of stereo system documenting as well as the threat it constituted to the near future product sales of monaural information, Walter was asked to attempt a new group of recordings in stereo system to protect his interpretations in probably the most contemporary sound possible, also to allow them to attain new decades of listeners. The effect was a fresh Columbia Symphony Orchestra, selected specifically by as well as for Walter. This group was an ensemble of 50 to 70 users, assembled from the very best freelance music artists on the Western Coast, a lot of whom typically by no means required on orchestral function, but produced the exception to utilize Walter. It had been one of the better documenting orchestras ever put together in america, incorporating lots of the greatest characteristics from the Vienna Philharmonic as well as the Leipzig Gewandhaus — which Walter experienced carried out in Austria and Germany through the 1920s and 1930s — along with the NY Philharmonic. This orchestra documented a lot of the primary Classical and Passionate repertoire under Walter’s baton, like the past due Mozart symphonies, Mahler’s Symphonies No. 1 no. 9, the four Brahms symphonies, Dvorák’s Symphonies No. 8 no. 9, Schubert’s Ninth, the Wagner orchestral music, and the entire Beethoven symphonies.

#Fact
1 On November 12 1931, Abbey Road Studios officially opened its doors with Sir Edward Elgar conducting the London Symphony Orchestra playing Land of Hope and Glory.
2 The LSO was formed in 1904 when 50 members of the Queen's Hall Orchestra rebelled against Sir Henry Wood's edict that 'no deputies' be sent to rehearsals and concerts. The Orchestra is self-governing and is now made up of nearly a hundred talented players who also perform regularly as soloists and in chamber groups.
3 When the Orchestra toured to the US in 1912 it originally had tickets for the Titanic. An accident in testing one of her sister ships meant the Titanic's maiden voyage was delayed, leaving the LSO to choose between delaying the start of its tour or leave on the replacement (but less newsworthy) Baltic. Choosing the latter because of the scheduling of concerts, they heard the news of the disaster involving Titanic when they reached St Louis.
4 The LSO was the first British orchestra to visit the US (1912), Japan (1963), and South Africa (1956).
