No obscurities this week; no overlooked masterpieces or performers. A concert from one of your typical American symphony orchestras during a time when America was awash with symphony orchestras, chamber groups, choirs, musical societies and listeners.

A 1949 broadcast concert by The Indianapolis Symphony, led by Fabien Sevitsky, in a concert of what was standard fare at the time; music of Debussy, Charles Tomlinson Griffes, Frederick Delius and Ravel.

Maybe not challenging to some, and maybe even unfamiliar to many others. But this was what America was listening to when it came to Classical Music in 1949 by one of Americas major symphony orchestras.
