The Munich Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1945 by conductor Kurt Graunke as Graunke Symphony Orchestra. Since 1990 it bears its current name. Concerts of its regular international tours often feature performances with young soloists and regional talents in order to encourage the next generation of musicians. It has recorded music for over 500 films including Jerry Goldsmith's score for The Wind and the Lion, Christopher Young's music for Hellbound: Hellraiser II and Howard Shore's score for Silence of the Lambs. The orchestra was lead and conducted by Philippe Entremont in 2005-2006 for its U.S. debut tour.
