Quote from: uffeviking on April 13, 2007, 06:53:46 AMInteresting new thread should clarify a lot of questions - except the rare cases where two, or more, institutions have the same acronym. BPO - could be the Budapest Philharmonic Orchestra, or the Boston Philharmonic Orchestra! Maybe in such a case, listing the name of the city would be helpful.
Quote from: Joe Barron on April 13, 2007, 09:18:43 AMIs there such a thing as the Boston Philharmonic? In these pages, I refer to the Boston Symphony Orhcestra as the BSO.

Quote from: Greta on April 14, 2007, 03:47:45 AMFor BPO, two common orchestras I associate that with are the Berlin Phil and the Boston Pops. And Vienna commonly is VPO even though technically it should be WP. We have a tendency to add Orchestra at the end here in the States, even when it technically isn't part of their official name.And changing orchestra names over the years can really make this kind of thing confusing! For the UKers, did the RSNO and RLPO used to not be Royal? I have seen acronyms without the R for both of these in some older recordings and it confused me. Actually the Royal thing is a common inconsistency, the Concertgebouw is often referred to either way. Also, who decides if an orchestra is Royal, does the monachy pronounce them so, or do they just proclaim it for themselves?
Quote from: Que on April 16, 2007, 09:41:02 PMYou mean: KCO (or RCO). Q
Quote from: RebLem on April 16, 2007, 09:38:25 PMObviously, the BSO is the premier orch in Boston, but yes, there is another orchestra called the Boston Philharmonic. I think their MD (music director) is still Benjamin Zander.
Quote from: Valentino on April 18, 2007, 04:27:56 AMBPO is of course Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra (of Norway).
