I also thought it was a real Beethoven piece. I would love to know if I'm wrong.

Sorry about the off-topicness, I didn't notice the second page. I guess I was so flustered about Rage Over a Lost Penny not being authentic that I got all confused.

uh... the music thread???????
phyrebrand, nothing to apologize for, in fact you're the only one upholding the original intent of this thread.
speaking of misnomers, the English horn is an even worse misnomer, since it's not English, nor a horn. it comes from cor angle, which is French for bent horn, since the original ones were a little bent. (Oboe da caccias in Italian). 1st oboe can probably add/correct this.

I've always known it as a "cor anglais" which is obviously yet another misnomer and/or mistranslation.

Cor Anglais is the way the French was mispronounced in England and led to the misnomer, that misnomer caught on in the continent too, even in France.
