He was initially co-conductor with Leopold Stokowski, and became the sole music director in 1951. During Mitropoulos's tenure, the orchestra recorded extensively, branched out into television and even gave a week of performances at the Roxy Theatre, a popular movie theater in New York. He was succeeded by Leonard Bernstein in 1957. This week's broadcast comprises recordings of from the New York Philharmonic's archives.
