It’s easy to forget.  Just today, in writing program notes for a concert of 
Beethoven’s last piano sonata, violin sonata and string quartet, I remembered 
that B. had remarked some time after the ninth symphony, perhaps five years 
before he died that he was just then learning how to compose.  I wanted to 
confirm that he made that remark.  My web search for “just learning to compose” 
took me straight to an essay about a B. quartet on the Los Angeles Philharmonic 
website, written by — you guessed it — me.
