There's a truck stop near the California-Nevada Border called "Hallelujah Junction." Composer John Adams would drive by and wonder "What kind of music would fit a title like Hallelujah Junction?" On today's show, hear Adams's answer to his own question in an arrangement and performance by the Anderson and Roe Piano Duo. Plus, Bruce Adolphe has this week's Piano Puzzler.
