This week's contestant is Ted Fisher from Belgrade, Serbia. The fellow is a foreign service officer serving in the embassy there, so hopefully he still has that job by the time this aired -- which I assume is the case since I haven't heard of any State Department controversies in the past three days. As for the composer style, it came down to two who always are so similar to me...and I guessed the wrong one. As did the contestant initially. With the hidden song, know that only afterwards does pianist Bruce Adolphe say, "I should have mentioned beforehand that there are two hidden songs in there," and then plays it again. It seemed odd the first time around, and that explains it. I did get one of the tunes very clearly the first time around, and figured that was the answer, not knowing I was supposed to guess two. Listening the second time through, I recognized the song, but couldn't name it.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
