Review

"There is much re-tasting and savoring to be had in this collection...belly-laughs, subtle jokes and connections." -- Fred Child, Host of NPR's Performance Today

About the Author

Whether it’s about a fugitive turkey, a mysterious message from the moon, or a teenage T. rex, Bruce Adolphe’s music captures the hearts and minds of audiences of all ages. Bruce has composed music for Itzhak Perlman, The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, the National Symphony, the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, the Beaux Arts Trio, Sylvia McNair, the Brentano Quartet, and many other renowned musicians and organizations. A composer, author, actor, pianist and scriptwriter, Bruce has earned a national reputation as a leading figure in the field of music education and audience development. Renowned for combining comedy and musical scholarship, he has been the lecturer of The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center since 1992 and a featured speaker at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art since 2001, as well as a frequent guest lecturer at many of the country’s premier concert series and festivals, music schools and education conferences. A prolific author, Bruce has written three books on the art of listening to music: The Mind’s Ear: Exercises for Improving the Musical Imagination; What to Listen for in the World; and Of Mozart, Parrots and Cherry Blossoms in the Wind: A Composer Explores Mysteries of the Musical Mind. He has appeared on nationally televised Live from Lincoln Center broadcasts, and is often a guest on National Public Radio. Bruce’s latest radio venture is a comic musical quiz show featuring his renditions of familiar tunes in the styles of famous composers for NPR.

These tunes are a little more technical than other of his compilations but they are definitely worth the extra time in the practice room. It's fun to work on these but also to go back and explore the original works that went into it. Lots of fun.

I am slightly disappointed that there are only 30 but it shall be epic none the less!
Definitely a worthy Christmas present for someone who can play the piano and love some modest challenges.
Besides, you get some unique songs.

This was a Christmas present for my son who is a professional pianist. Among our Christmas guests were several musicians and we had a lot of fun guessing the songs and the styles of famous composers.

We are presenting "American Music" at our music club in November. We have decided to present several of Bruce Adolphe's compositions and have our members guess the composers and themes.
