Broadcasts & Recordings

Since its first recording session in 1924, The Cleveland Orchestra has been among the most acclaimed and recorded orchestras in the world.  The Orchestra’s performances have been heard by millions through radio and television broadcasts, on LPs, CDs, DVDs, and via internet downloads.

The Cleveland Orchestra’s radio broadcasting history dates back nearly to its founding in 1918.  These broadcasts were heard each week by people as far away as Maine, Florida, Minnesota, and Canada.  In fact, Cleveland was somewhat of a broadcast pioneer – it was only the third orchestra to broadcast its concerts, having been preceded by the Detroit Symphony and the New York Philharmonic, both of which had begun their concert broadcasts earlier in 1922. 

Since 1965, the Orchestrah as been heard on weekly broadcasts on local radio station WCLV 104.9 FM, and heard around the world in a syndicated series of annual radio programs.
