This week's contest Bodie Foste from Eugene, Oregon. This is an odd ;little piece, and a long one. I actually guessed the hidden composer right off...but as it went on, I said, nahhh, and doubted my guess and figured no way, so I switched. Silly me. As for the hidden song, it has some themes with similarities to several songs. I guessed one and was wrong -- but didn't feel bad, because no one got it, not even the host Fred Childe, not even when pianist composer started playing the song's music almost by itself. But oddly, the fun is listening to the contestant and host try bewilderingly to guess it.
