 It is said that later in his life he heard a friend practicing it. After listening for some time he said "Whose is that?" "Yours," was the answer. "Mine? That piece of folly mine?" was his retort; "Oh, Beethoven, what an ass you were in those days!"' (Alexander Thayer ed. Forbes (1967), "Life of Beethoven Volume II" (Princeton University Press), p. 324).
