### Hummel's music tends to be rather boring, easily slides off my mind
into nonbeing. Beethoven is so distinctive, there are so many moving parts
that fit perfectly, and have never been used before.
The race between the pedestrian and the genius may take a long time but the
result tends to be definitive.
