Annotation

"The term Columbia Symphony Orchestra was also used when, for contractual reasons, another orchestra could not appear under its own name. Many Los Angeles Philharmonic musicians also played with the Columbia Symphony, and some reports mention that the entire (New York) Philharmonic frequently played as the Columbia Symphony."

"Leonard Bernstein (pianist & conductor) and the "Columbia Symphony Orchestra" (which is actually New York Philharmonic Orchestra as CBS had to use the alias due to contractual requirements) in 1959...."
