The Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra (German: Radio-Sinfonieorchester Stuttgart des SWR) is an orchestra based in Stuttgartmarker in Germanymarker. The ensemble was founded in 1945 by Americanmarker occupation authorities as the orchestra for Radio Stuttgart, under the name Sinfonieorchester von Radio Stuttgart (Symphony Orchestra of Radio Stuttgart). The radio network later became the Süddeutschen Rundfunk (South German Radio), and the orchestra changed its name in 1949 to the Sinfonieorchester des Süddeutschen Rundfunks (South German Radio Symphony Orchestra). In 1959, the orchestra took on the name Südfunk-Sinfonieorchester, and acquired its current name in 1975.

Like many broadcast orchestras in Germany, the orchestra has a reputation for performing contemporary music. Past principal conductors included Sir Neville Marriner (1983-1989), who later held the title of principal guest conductor. Since 1998, Roger Norrington is the orchestra's Principal Conductor. Georges Prêtre, who became the orchestra's artistic director in 1996, has the title of Conductor Laureate.
