Piano Puzzler

Every week on Performance Today™, Bruce Adolphe re-writes a familiar tune in the style of a classical composer. We get one of our listeners on the phone, and our caller listens to Bruce play his Piano Puzzler™. They then try to do two things: name the hidden tune, and name the composer whose style Bruce is mimicking. From American Public Media.

This is an incredible show! I’ve been listening for years and there is no other show even remotely like this. The Piano Puzzler is simultaneously fun and jaw dropping as the tremendous genius of Bruce Adolph is on display through his witty, tantalizing and virtuosic piano creations.

More Faure!!
