On the second video, the one just above, that is the second movement of Beethoven’s ninth symphony (molte vivace!).

Beethoven was born in Bonn in Germany (which is festooned with reminders) and he lived in Vienna. Unlike Mozart, he doesnt seem to have visited Italy, though they sure play a lot of him there.

Here’s an article on the ninth, the most-played, and here are some YouTube videos.


The first of our poster Cesare Boccaria’s series of four posts on the fascinating gamesmanship of the three defenses should be up within several hours of the timing of this comment.

The series literally took weeks of work for Cesare to get just right.

It draws entirely on the judges’ report (our first posts deriving from that, the English-language version of which gets closer) and other Italian-language reports and videos.
