    I\'ll try not to be abusive. One of the world\'s great orchestras, and perhaps the world\'s greatest in 1958, it was NEVER called the Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra. It was, is, and will forever be the Philadelphia Orchestra. Sorry, can\'t resist: pathetic. Indeed, the Barber Adagio seems an apt choice for so heart-rending, and glaring, an error. Please correct this.
