: Unusual? He's done something no composer has ever done. He's placed himself at the center of his work. He gives us a glimpse into his soul. I expect that's why it is so noisy. But it is something quite new. Quite new. The artist as hero. Everything is different from today.
Ludwig van Beethoven
: [Making introductions
] Sir, my student - Reis. He's an idiot. Josef Haydn
: All students are idiots. It's traditional. **Note: Beethoven was a student of Haydns.**
