Fascinating, PDG (really). I must ask you then :

a) What, in a written text, allows you to identify the gender of the writer, in your view?

b) ... but not in a musical composition?

c) Why is it important?

This forum is getting better by the minute. But I must go to bed. Speak to you later, I hope.

I think I will have to assign you a role in the next Act of my epic play - see "Comedy Corner" elsewhere on this forum.
I don't "visualize" a specific river, that's just the image that comes to my mind, but I suppose it must be the Rhine, in Beethoven's music. Personally, when I think of a river, I think Hudson or East River, but that's just my own background.

Maybe he could have scored a tuba for that part?

Yes 1835, or around twenty-five to seven in the evening. Just in time for a gaseous response to dinner!...
