Every week on Performance Today™, Bruce Adolphe re-writes a familiar tune in the style of a classical composer. We get one of our listeners on the phone, and our caller listens to Bruce play his Piano Puzzler™. They then try to do two things: name the hidden tune, and name the composer whose style Bruce is mimicking. From American Public Media.

Delightful!

I jealously guard my Saturday mornings so that I can breakfast, listen to WXXI-FM in Rochester, NY and enjoy attempting to solve the Piano Puzzler

A complete joy!!!

Do at with the family at the holidays - yep - get everyone involved - a sure fire way to have fun as a group and listen to something beautiful at the same time.

So challenging, fun and interesting!

This is a great way to really learn how to listen with sensitivity and removing your pre-conceptions. I also learn a lot about techniques and styles of great composers. The host is so friendly and warm and Bruce’s compositions stand o. Their own ad masterpieces!
