Founded in 1934, the French National Symphony Orchestra is one of the most famous and representative symphony orchestras in France. The group's first resident commander, Desire Emile Angel Bresht, established the musical tradition of the orchestra, and the works of Debussy and Ravel as the mainstay of the repertoire. The French National Symphony Orchestra has always recommended new music creations to the public and society as a special mission. Many of the works premiered by them in France or around the world have become classics of the 20th century.
