Ol’ Robbo is currently listening to Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3, the “Eroica”.  It occurs to me that, in composing this piece, ol’ Ludvig Van was engaged in an exercise of something along the lines of musickal bullying.

“Ja! I push der limits of der musickalish proprietygevunlthousstruhnt.  Und vat ist ju goink to do about it? You und vat army?” 

I can appreciate Beethoven, but I could never love him.
