This week's contestant is Scott Rose from San Antonio, Texas. And it appears not to be a repeat, so perhaps the show has indeed just been on vacation the past few weeks. It's a wonderful piece to return to, as the contestant describes it, "cruelly beautiful." I'm actually shocked that I got the composer style. It's not someone whose work I know well -- though he's very well-known -- and both the contestant and host Fred Child had problem guessing it right off, though were in the right area. As for the hidden song, I didn't have a clue for almost all the entire thing -- it's incredibly, gorgeously well-hidden -- but then towards the end, bingo, I heard it, and was right. The short version is that this is a fun one.
