Beethoven

What a strange scherzo to hear Beethoven revered as one of the old masters, a fatherly icon of classical music. What amusing irony to see him accepted by the appropriate crowd.

Listen to that diabolical music! An affront to all classical sentiment, much of it sounding like a meltdown set to notes.

Genius—respectable only in retrospect.
