American Recording Society Orchestra

Profile:
This orchestra, claimed as a hand-picked band of American musicians and called the American Recording Society Symphony Orchestra, has since been identified as the Vienna Symphony Orchestra (Wiener Symphoniker). The post-WWII were hard times and orchestras needed money, forcing many orchestras to reform into various and often smaller ad-hoc orchestras and ensembles — according to the need. Most of the recordings were conducted by Americans brought in for the job, such as Dean Dixon (2) and Walter Hendl, but also local ones like Hans Swarowsky, setting down 20th century American works — mostly for the first time.
