Topic: My First Visit To This Part Of Chordie
This hasn't anything to do with theory, but I have a 2 part trivia question y'all might find interesting or maybe not.
In another thread I mentioned I could talk about and listen to the Maestro Ludwig van Beethoven all day long.
There's a reason I fancy myself a "Beethoven scholar" and it all began with a strange note in this, one of his most beautiful compositions:
Can you detect the note (or notes, depending on who is playing - many improvise)? I don't read piano music, but begin listening at :32.
A German friend of mine claims to know why Beethoven put that note in there. Do you?
He says that many of his contemporaries did this as well.
