I think it might indicate a stutter They've tried this one with Mahler as well and perhaps with more justification. http://josephlihm.blogspot.co.uk/200...phony-and.html

Whatever next?

Didn't Beethoven fall in love with Julia Guicciardi in 1801 when she was aged 16? Her father forbade any match with B then due to his deafness. She left for Italy in 1803 after marrying the impotent Count Gallenberg. Shouldn't the women in the article (1809) be Therese Malfatti and not Julia.
