Britney, Beethoven, and a Dash of Inspiration

Ya don't say

"It's really a question about inspiration ... what is it that Beethoven sees in this 32 bars of nothing?" says Kaufman. "I always say it would be like if Philip Glass found a song by Britney Spears and decided to spend the next four years of his life studying and making variations on it."

I've always liked the Thirty-two Variations in C minor better than the Thirty-three Diabelli Variations, myself. I had an old LP of Andre Watts playing it when I was in college, and later I bought the score - which I still have - and have always ben fascinated by the similarities between it and Bach's Chaconne variations.

I'm not so sure about that play though. Yeesh.
