I have now "completed" this series covering many of the world's most prominent orchestras and their principal conductors/musical directors from roughly 1920 to the present day.
There are currently 204 orchestras listed.

I have been adding a few orchestras to the national lists over the past few days. Examples include the Glyndebourne Festival Opera, the Hamburg Symphony Orchestra, the Budapest Symphony Orchestra (otherwise known as the Hungarian Radio and Television Symphony Orchestra), the North Carolina Symphony Orchestra and Virginia Symphony Orchestra in the USA, and the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra and the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra in Canada. I am happy to add other orchestras if anyone cares to suggest them to me. I am very aware that there are cases of particular countries-eg Spain-where coverage is thin.

There have been a few corrections pointed out to me.

This project has involved a considerable amount of research. I do hope that the lists will be of some use or interest to others. The websites of most (but by no means all) orchestras and the Wikipedia articles on orchestras do contain such lists but I did think that bringing them together in one place might be helpful.

I know that not everyone shares my 'passion' for lists  Grin....but I enjoy the research involved and sharing with others.....etc etc etc. Smiley

I am sorry Embarrassed

I was just in a mood of self-pity Embarrassed

You are quite right Tobias. It is the nature of the internet that research material goes up, people DO use it but seldom comment. I am-undoubtedly-as guilty of that as others Sad

Apologies!!
