I don't know why I love Beethoven's hand-written scores so much. Maybe it's because there are so many corrections and cross-outs - I can relate to him as a human being. That's the thing regarding Beethoven's music - it incorporates victory, tragedy, intimacy and sublimity and much more. Anyways, I decided to do a microscopic examination of B.'s actual penmanship today...kind of a "pop-art" view of his manuscripts.
Here's a video I made of a good selection... (music excerpt from Artur Schnabel performing Opus 111, 2nd mvmt)
and here's my album of "Close-up Beethoven" (with which I made the video above).
