I think it might indicate a stutter They've tried this one with Mahler as well and perhaps with more justification. http://josephlihm.blogspot.co.uk/200...phony-and.html

Whatever next?

Didn't Beethoven fall in love with Julia Guicciardi in 1801 when she was aged 16? Her father forbade any match with B then due to his deafness. She left for Italy in 1803 after marrying the impotent Count Gallenberg. Shouldn't the women in the article (1809) be Therese Malfatti and not Julia.

I misread the title of this article and I thought the writer was blaming Beethoven for all the anger in today's world:

http://www.thestrad.com/listening-be...-modern-world/

And another article (which I will spare you) states that apes can't tell the difference between Beethoven and Justin Bieber. Who would have thought it?

He could be responsible. Maybe the English got fed up with the European Anthem.
