A Trading Places Musical Quiz

Radio Show Inside Music featuring Mozart's Overture to The Marriage of Figaro

When film composer Elmer Bernstein scored the 1983 comedy hit Trading Places, he chose Mozart’s Overture to The Marriage of Figaro to be the musical centerpiece of the film.  However, he also intentionally paraphrased other orchestral works.  Let’s find out how many of these we recognize!

Listen on the encore performance on WWFM The Classical Network on Saturday January 28, 2023 at 7:30 PM ET.
