There's a number of additional Beethoven allusions through BLN, but I'll have to listen again to the album and do some research to make sure I've got all the right pieces.--patton1138 00:27, 1 Apr 2005 (UTC)

The article refers to Beethoven's wife (Artistic Liberties). The liner notes say Theresa is the "Immortal Beloved", but not his wife. Have I missed something out, or is the article wrong here?

I just noticed that too. Beethoven's "immortal beloved" is a well known historical mystery. I've added a reference to this effect. Raul654 00:17, 24 May 2006 (UTC)


As an aside, I had always thought of Twist's name and being the son of Fate as being more a reference to a "twist of fate" than a "twist ending."The Dark 01:51, 1 July 2006 (UTC)


There are, I think, some hints of the variations (but not the main theme) of Pachelbel's Canon.

Musical References[edit]

I think a subsection needs to be made on this. It took me by surprise when I heard Beethoven's 8th piano sonata and Chopin's Op 68 Mazurka No. 3 to find the tunes were identical to those of Mephistopheles's Return and The Dreams of Candlelight respectively. I can identify most of the sections which are obviously references (although the track Beethoven still eludes me) but I'm curious if there were others I missed,. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.135.18.101 (talk) 00:20, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

Should have logged in to write the above, but anyway I added all the parts I can identify, but I get the feeling theres probably quite a bit more I missed. Woscafrench (talk) 17:04, 1 September 2008 (UTC)

I think there are a few more Beethoven Piano sonatas here. Also, the last 1/3 of X. has definitely got bits of Pachelbel's Canon in it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 87.194.171.29 (talk) 06:28, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

Faustian legend[edit]

Shouldn't the Category:Works based on the Faust legend be added to this article? -- Michael Bednarek (talk) 03:22, 24 September 2009 (UTC) meph is actually the soul collector.. who guides the lost soul;s to either heaven or hell.. like a third party. the resoning behiond why he may have obtained his soul back is becuase to the unaware eyes of god and the devil.. meph has his own heaven/hell where he also collects souls for himself.. he uses dance as a way of portraying his grace and elagance,,, which may be why he would have made a deal with beethoven himself so that beethoven (one of the greatest composerrs of time)would have joined him in his world after life as a composer to an everlasting dance party. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 144.137.73.196 (talk) 06:52, 21 December 2011 (UTC)
