Une analyse plus poussée, qui dépasse le cadre de gfotz.ch, permettrait peut-être, sur la base de ce mouvement, de soutenir l'hypothèse de l'origine africaine de Beethoven.
“Ludwig van Beethoven had a precise and almost absolute knowledge of polyrhythmic systems and patterns from the Gulf of Guinea region, on the west African coast. Although they are unwritten, I would even say that these traditional patterns … were fundamental to his work as a composer. Beethoven has achieved the perfect synthesis between polyphonic modes and tonal system, developed in Europe in the centuries that preceded his era, with polyrhythmic system and patterns from west Africa.
