Munich Symphony Orchestra vs Graunke Symphony Orchestra

There are three entries on IMDB:
  • Münchner Symphoniker (nm2825413)
  • Das Symphonie-Orchester Kurt Graunke (nm7017886 )
  • Symphonie-Orchester Graunke (nm4020664 )

The second and third are obviously the same orchestra and should be merged.

According to Wikipedia, though, all three are the same entity. The orchestra was known as the “Graunke Symphony Orchestra” until 1990, when it adopted the name, "Münchner Symphoniker". The change occurred when Kurt Graunke stepped down as conductor.

So, I propose to merge all three entities into one, under the name "Münchner Symphoniker".

Is this the best approach?

Hi Graham,
I see no obstacle to go ahead as you propose.
