The Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra (Finnish: Radion sinfoniaorkesteri, Swedish: Radions Symfoniorkester) is a Finnish orchestra based in Helsinki, and the orchestra of the Finnish Broadcasting Company (Yle). The orchestra primarily gives concerts at the Helsinki Music Centre. Primary funding comes from television licence fees from the Finnish population. The roster grew to 67 musicians by 1953. The orchestra's second chief conductor, Nils-Eric Fougstedt, served from 1950 until his death in 1961, and expanded the orchestra's repertoire. The ensemble had grown to 90 members in the 1970s, into a full symphony orchestra.
From instrumental group to symphony orchestra – the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra (RSO) 1927–2002 The evolution of the Finnish Broadcasting Company YLE's ten-man ensemble into a 98-member symphony orchestra is a colourful and exciting story spanning several generations. In the course of its seventy-five years, the orchestra has played on thousands of occasions in studios, on stages, in Helsinki and other Finnish venues, toured abroad, made programmes for television and recorded music on discs. Nils-Eric Fougstedt died in 1961. He was succeeded by Paavo Berglund, who had started out as the orchestra's first violinist over ten years previously and also gradually devoted himself to conducting. In addition to Sibelius, other composers from previous generations, starting with B. H. Crusell, were heard relatively frequently.
