It was originally known as the Palestine Orchestra, and in Hebrew as התזמורת הסימפונית הארץ ישראלית (ha-Tizmoret ha-Simfonit ha-Eretz-Yisre'elit, i.e. Symphony Orchestra of Eretz Israel; the IPO was founded by violinist Bronisław Huberman in 1936, at a time when many Jewish musicians were being fired from European orchestras. Its inaugural concert took place in Tel Aviv on Dec. 26, 1936, and was conducted by Arturo Toscanini; changed its name from Palestine Orchestra to Israel Philharmonic Orchestra probably around 1948 when Israel came into being)
