The Philadelphia Orchestra was founded in 1900. Eugene Ormandy (1899-1985)
stood at its head as principal conductor from 1936 to 1980. Continuing the
work of his predecessor Leopold Stokowski, he turned the orchestra into
one of the leading ensembles not only of the United States, but of the
world. Under his direction, the orchestra became renowned in particular
for its performances of late romantic and early 20th-century music.
