The Detroit Symphony Orchestra

 

The Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) is one of the renowned American orchestra based in Detroit, Michigan which is the America's Fourth Oldest Orchestra. The ensemble of DSO is elegant, delicate and has a classical taste. Its main performance center is Orchestra Hall at the Max M. Fisher Music Center in Detroit's Midtown neighborhood. The orchestra's first concert took place at the old Detroit Opera House on February 26, 1914.

 

The appointment of the Russian pianist, a friend of composers Gustav Mahler and Sergei Rachmaninoff, Ossip Gabrilowitsch as music director in 1918 brought instant status to the new orchestra. During the early 1920s, the DSO fast became one of the finest and most prominent orchestras in the country. Over the next two decades, the orchestra performed with spectacular guest artists such as Enrico Caruso, Igor Stravinsky, Richard Strauss, Marian Anderson, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Isadora Duncan, Anna Pavlova, Jascha Heifetz, Pablo Casals and others.

 

The symphony has produced many recordings on the Victor, London, Decca, Mercury, RCA, Chandos and DSO labels. The DSO recording of Igor Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring was the first CD to win the Grand Prix du Disque award. The DSO currently records for the Naxos label and they regularly broadcast live of the band performances in the official website.
