    Well, where's the mass tensor I ?

    That's me, about 235 years ago.

    I expected that you'd explain things like "what is a rigid rotator" and "how does the treatement of uniform circular motion made by stunner does not apply to it."

    I'd really like to know who is in your avatar, I assume he is some mathematician or physicist who lived some 235 years ago but I've never seen him before.

    I'm still clueless. I just know he's a musician and he's not Bethoven.

    And how do you know that ? I mean, you first thought this guy was a scientist. Why the sudden change ?

    ps : it's "van Beethoven", to be exact

    quasar:
    It is a common misconception that Beethoven went about with his hair in disarray all day long.
    When he went out for lunch, he always combed his hair first.

    haha, it is not the hair that made me rule out beethoven, but rather the grave expression. But then again, I'm sure he put that aside as well as soon as he took a bite out of his sandwich.

    I think the Lacrimosa hint is a total give away. Did Quasar get it yet?

    Some excruciatingly dumb art critic actually managed to say that this composer couldn't be called a genius because he didn't invent "new" music, but merely followed the traditions..
     
  16. Feb 13, 2006 #15
    indeed that's correct.

    Besides, "he" did not just follow traditions, he combined several styles in a most ingenious way and he wrote masterpieces in almost every "kind" of music.

    I think it was the philosopher Kierkegaard who said that this composer had to die early, otherwise, the heavens would have been emptied of music..
