    Will check it out! Thanks

    One interesting thing I've always wondered ... weren't there only two timpani present in the orchestra at Beethoven's time? (hence only the high and low F timpani in the 2nd movement of 9th?) There are four pictured here.

    Actually, during that particular performance, in addition to the 9th symphony, Beethoven's Missa Solemnis was also premiered. (That was a HECK of a LONG concert). Missa Solemnis required 4 Timpani - mostly because there wasn't enough time to tune from D and A to B and F between the Sanctus and the Agnus Dei.

    Just for your info.
