In 1960, a historic event occurred in which the orchestra performed the same work under a close associated of the original composer, conductor George Georgescu.
During its early years, the National Symphony Orchestra also recorded Camille Saint–Saens’ King Henry VIII opera’s ballet music for RCA recordings, under conductor Walter Damrosch. This was one of a handful of rare recordings under the musical leadership of conductor Walter Damrosch.
