CHICAGO SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA/WFMT Marathon/Radiothon/Symphonython Recordings

This is an alphabetical (by composer) index of the contents of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra's series of CDs, "From The Archives," which ran from 1986 through 2008.

Every year from 1976 through 2008, radio station WFMT-FM held a "radiothon" to raise money for the CSO, and each year, one of the premiums offered was an exclusive LP or a set of CDs. From 1976-1985, these were single LPs of mixed contents (historical recordings, recent recordings, some rarities, and some previously unissued recordings). I have not included the contents of these LPs in the index, but I have listed the contents of these LPs at the bottom.

In 1986, the CSO began its "From The Archives" series of limited edition sets of previously unissued concert recordings. The first volume (Reiner) came out as a 2-LP set. For the next several years, the sets were produced in LP and CD formats of identical contents, eventually becoming CD-only issues. In 1996, the CSO issued a CD version of the 1986 Reiner set.

To make it easier to find a specific performance, I created this index.

Sorry, I don't have any of these sets to sell - some of the sets might still be available through the orchestra - http://www.cso.org/.

=================================

CHICAGO SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA/WFMT RADIO MARATHON LPs

For each year of the first decade of the CSO/WFMT Radio Marathons, the CSO issued a series of LPs that predated the "From The Archive" series that began with the 1986 Radiothon. These LPs were designed more to be "samplers" of the CSO, and were made up mainly of previously-issued recordings, including many historical rarities that had not been reissued on LP by that point (but had been available on 78s). Some of the LPs included studio recordings that had never been issued in any form.

Below is a listing of these LPs, with an asterisk indicating a recording that was receiving its first issue.
