I skimmed over an Edward Said essay last night in an Adorno Reader book I picked up - rambles on a bit about Adorno speaking of the lateness (and proximity to death) of Beethoven's final works being supremely artistic, assaults on bourgeoisie society - not so much shattered, splintered and unfinished, but rather exploded pieces that pointed to the way towards Schoenberg's work... Made sense. Anyway, voices and pianos and strings below.
