You probably know that Google often customizes its logo to observe a holiday, honor an anniversary, etc. Snowflakes for the first day of winter, trees for Arbor Day . . . that kind of thing.

Today (June 17) it's the birthday of a famous composer. Go to the site , take a close look at the artwork, and see if you can figure out who it is. (For the answer, float your cursor over the logo.)

And if you like brainteasers, remember Wednesday is always Piano Puzzler day on Performance Today.
