Frederick Charles Adler (usually known as F. Charles Adler) (born on 2 July 1889 in London and died 16 February, 1959 in Vienna) was an English-German conductor.
Adler studied with Gustav Mahler and served as chorus master at the premiere of Mahler's "Eighth Symphony". He worked as a conductor in Germany in the 1920s, and emigrated to the U.S. in 1933. He made many recordings of the works of Mahler and Anton Bruckner. He made the first commercial recordings of Mahler's "Third" and "Sixth" symphonies. His recordings of Bruckner symphonies are unusual in that they use the first published editions rather than the later critical editions. (Hans Knappertsbusch was the only other major conductor to stick with the first editions consistently.) His recording of Bruckner's "Sixth Symphony" is, as of 2006, the only recording ever made of the first published edition. His recording of Bruckner's "Ninth Symphony" is one of only two available to use the inauthentic first edition by Ferdinand Löwe.
