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.
