The latest from the land of Piano Puzzlers, with host Fred Child and pianist Bruce Adolphe. The contestant this week is Gary Hoffman from Ketchum, Idaho. This is a repeat, which I recognize from a couple years ago. I didn't remember the answer to the quiz, though the song was pretty clear (to me) right off. Oddly, Mr. Hoffman gets the composer style right off, but has trouble with the hidden song. Beyond the music quiz, what I'm wondering if the show is just on summer vacation, or if they're not making any more. I'm going to guess "vacation" and hope I got this one right. Then again, even if I'm wrong the quizzes still are basically "new-ish" since I don't tend to remember the details.
