31 32 MUSIC, LIBRARIES, AND THE ACADEMY: ESSAYS IN HONOR OF LENORE CORAL forbearance. I believe Mozart’s and Da Ponte’s characterizations of the noble couple, and Mozart’s handling of the absolution, support an alternative reading. Rather than be purified by mercy, the relations between the characters remain ambiguous, and the feelings of the heroine, ambivalent. APOTHEOSIS The scene of forgiveness inspires music of undeniable and in many ways unexpected beauty. It follows the opera’s last great imbroglio, in which the Count trumpets his discovery of Figaro with “the Countess” (Susanna in disguise), they beg his mercy, he refuses, the real Countess appears, and everyone stands astonished.

By early, I mean the Bonn years, then tutelage under Haydn in Vienna, and in general the phase when Beethoven’s music was closely tied to what Haydn and Mozart had wrought. Connections with the works of other composers must also come into play, especially those of the leading composers in France in the decade following the Revolution of 1789. One does not have to go very far in studying the operas and overtures of Luigi Cherubini (1760–1842) to fathom why Beethoven held his music in such high esteem.

With good reason one selects for a good quartet the four well-known string instruments, which, owing to their uniformity of timbre, are most capable of the most perfect unity.
