The symphony orchestra of the French-language section of the Belgian broadcasting service was established in 1978. The body from which it sprang, the Belgian Radio Orchestra, was created in 1923 and was later enlarged, earning a reputation under its conductor Franz André (1935-1958) for the introduction of new music by composers such as Bartók, Milhaud and Stravinsky. The RTBF Symphony Orchestra was conducted from its foundation by Edgard Doneux who was succeeded in 1984 by Alfred Walter. The orchestra appears regularly in France and Germany and has made a number of recordings, in addition to its regular work for the Belgian broadcasting service.
