I don't know if the Piano Puzzler folks are on summer break, or if they're not doing new ones anymore. I suspect the former, but that's as much hope as anything. I say that because this week's contest is another repeat. The contestant is Sherry M. from Austin, Texas. I found the contest one that was reasonably easy to guess -- though it's a repeat, that had nothing to do with it. I didn't remember the game part, I recognized the conversation beforehand, talking to a lady who had her own radio show and who's a documentary filmmaker. I was surprised that she had trouble with the composer style, since it's mimics not just a style but a fairly-known piece. And my surprise is all the more understandable when the woman herself says afterwards (when she gets it on her second guess and some help) that she's embarrassed because she always says the composer is her favorite.
