PT Weekend: Our weekly musical game

Fred Child and composer Bruce AdolpheAPM

October 09, 2021

Every week on our Piano Puzzler, composer Bruce Adolphe re-writes a familiar tune in the style of a great composer. One of our listeners calls in, tries to guess the tune and the composer whose style Bruce is mimicking. Tune in and play along with our weekly musical game: the Piano Puzzler.
