Biography/History

Eugene Ormandy was born on November 8, 1899 in Hungary and died in Philadelphia on March 12, 1985. He became internationally famous for his 44-year role as the conductor of the Philadelphia Orchestra. Under his leadership, the Philadelphia Orchestra received three gold records and won two Grammy Awards. At age five, Ormandy began studying violin at the Royal National Hungarian Academy of Music, giving his first concerts at age seven and graduating with a master?s degree at age fourteen. He moved to America in 1921 and became a violinist at the Capitol Theatre in New York City. In 1931, Ormandy served as a substitute conductor for the Philadelphia Orchestra which ultimately led to his first major appointment as a conductor in Minneapolis. In 1936, Ormandy began his work with the Philadelphia Orchestra as associate conductor under Leopold Stokowski. After two years, he became the lead conductor and remained so until his retirement in 1980.

Scope and Contents

This collection contains test pressings and private recordings, mostly of Eugene Ormandy conducting the Philadelphia Orchestra although many are not labeled. Included are recordings of rehearsals and radio broadcasts. Recording studios include Air-Tone Sound, Magnetic Recorder and Reproducer, Rockhill, Columbia, and RCA Victor.

Service copies with noise reduction (compact discs) of all recordings except Item 33 (a 1944 recording of Sergei Rachmaninoff's Rapsodie on a theme of Paganini, piano by William Kapell), were created in 2010 and are available for use by researchers. Intellectually, the service copies are arranged in alphabetical order by composer; but physically, they are arranged by item number.

The contents of this collection are also described in full on Franklin.

The original recordings, restricted from access by the public, consist mostly of 33 1/3 rpm recordings, with some 78 rpm recordings from the 1930s. Original recording are located in boxes 10-22 and item 33 (Rachmanifnoff's Rapsodie on a theme of Paganini), which was not duplicated, is located in box 13. At time of creation of service copies, 2 other copies of the recordings were also made: Masters with noise reduction (located in boxes 4-6) and Data flat transfers (located in boxes 6-9).
