The contest this week is Mary Elfner from Richmond, VA. Let's just say that if you can't get the hidden tune, one of the least-hidden that I think Bruce Adolphe has done, though it fits the composer's music well, you should give up playing now. I think there are a bunch of composers it could fit, though even host Fred Child was having a challenging time. I at least got the country of the composer right -- which doesn't qualify as "winning," but we'll take what we can gets...
By the way, this doesn't give much away, since I think the time period of his work should be clear (despite Ms. Elfner's first guess...) but the composer was given an honorary doctorate from Northwestern when I was there, late in his life, and even showed up to receive it. So, I've always had a warm spot in my heart for him -- even if I didn't guess him...
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
