Beethoven's manuscript shows the struggle of a composer in the process of creating one of the most cherished works of music in the Western canon. Unlike Mozart, whose work flowed directly and perfectly from the composer's mind onto the manuscript page, Beethoven's score shows the violent second-guessing of a composer who, in his attempts to connect with the divine, was deeply in touch with his own fallibility.
