James Sylvester on math and music. Found in the TED-Ed video on Math and Music, specifically Beethoven. I had the good fortune of going to the see the Fifth performed by the Grand Rapids Symphony this past weekend, and the TED-Ed lesson got at so much of what I was thinking about. The conductor does a lesson before the concert, and he did a great job setting the stage talking about the Fifths use of Thirds.
