The Los Angeles Music Festival was first organised for the purpose of presenting each year a Festival of Music, the programmes of which introduced many important works of music hitherto unknown not only in Southern California but sometimes even to America and the world. They included 70 world premières. From their inception, the Orchestra and Festival were under the leadership of Franz Waxman. The musicians in the Festival Orchestra were hand picked by Franz Waxman from colleagues he had worked with since 1935. On other recordings from the 1950s and 1960s the orchestra was known as the Columbia Symphony Orchestra in performances conducted by Bruno Walter and Igor Stravinsky.
