(A sampling of 1943 Americana tonight)

A departure from the usual format of 78's, I ran across this copy of a broadcast from NBC as part of their Music Of The New World Series. This one is from July 1943 and it features the NBC Studio Orchestra led by Joseph Stulpak with Arthur Balsam,piano in a program of works by late 19th and early 20th century American composers.

Some I'm sure you're familiar while others probably not so, at least anymore. But since we're smack in the middle of the 4th of July, how about a little Americana tonight?

So here's the lineup:

1. Leo Sowerby - Comes Autumntime Concert Overture
2. Charles Tomlinson Griffes - The White Peacock
3. John Alden Carpenter - excerpts from the ballet Krazy Kat
4. Paul Creston - Fantasy for Piano and Orchestra (with Arthur Balsam, piano)

Happy 4th!
