SPOKANE, Wash. — Three men charged with several bombings and
bank robberies in the Pacific Northwest also arc being investigated for
possible links to the Olympic Park bombing in Atlanta, a newspaper
However, while anonymous Justice Department and FBI officials
told The Spokesman-Review that the Spokane bombing suspects are
being investigated in the Atlanta case, they cautioned that they have
other leads and no solid suspects.
At this point, they are our strongest lead in the Olympics bomb
ing,” one Justice Department official told the newspaper. “But there’s a
lot more work to do, and it’s really early on in the investigation.”
The three men are being held without bail on charges of robbing
banks and bombing one of the banks, an abortion clinic and an office
of The Spokesman-Review.

BERLIN (AP)—The Ninth will
sound the same, and so will the
Fifth. Beethoven will still be
Beethoven because of a British
musicologist who is painstakingly
restoring the composer’s sympho
Average listeners probably
won’t bolt from their seats in
epiphany upon hearing the restora
tions, the first since the composer’s
death 150 years ago.
After a dozen years of compar
ing Beethoven’s original
scribblings with later copies,
Jonathan Del Mar is giving the
music world reason to reconsider
long-held notionsof the composer’s
work — and the popular image of
Beethoven as a sloppy genius.
Del Mar’s first corrected sym
phony, Beethoven’s Ninth, was
published just-Last week by
Baerenreiter musical publishers, of
Kassel, Germany. But the correc
tions already have been performed
by many conductors, including
John Eliot Gardiner, who incorpo
rated them in his 1994 recording
of the Ninth.
They are not footnotes,
Gardiner said. “I think anyone who
is at all serious about interpreting
Beethoven’s symphonies will find
they have totally new insights into
the workings of that extraordinary
It has long been acknowledged
that copyists and music publishers
over the years introduced errors into
Beethoven’s nine symphonies.
Never before, however, have all the
symphonies been corrected, due in
part to the sheer volume of notes in
a symphony. Del Mar’s version of
the Ninth is 350 pages long.
He plans to finish the remaining
eight symphonies by 2000, several
years ahead of a similar project by
the Beethoven Haus in Bonn, a cul
tural center dedicated to preserving
the composer’s work.
Whether Del Mar’s own correc
tions to the Ninth alter listeners’
experience depends on how famil
iar they are with the symphony.
“If they knew the piece ... I
would hope that 30 times they
would sit upright and think, ‘Oh!’”
Del Mar said.
Ludwig van Beethoven's sloppy
handwriting caused hundreds of tiny
errors as copyists and music publishers
transcribed his works. Here, a hom
passage in the Ninth Symphony.
As commonly published...
... and as revised by British
musicologist Jonathan Del Mar.
Del Mar found Beethoven had
written two extra ties in thesp three
measures. This smooths oqt the
rhythm and sustains the passage.

Del Mar determined what he be
lieves were Beethoven’s final nota
tions through close comparisons of
scores, some in Beethoven’s own
hand, in libraries and private col
lections throughout Europe.
Though Beethoven’s original
texts were a copyist’s nightmare,
Del Mar said, in reality, Beethoven
“was remarkably meticulous.”
^He sometimes wrote and re
wrote a pair of notes, crossing out
bar after bar until there was only a
tiny clear space left to record his
final thought, which often was over
looked when the piece was copied.
Musical transitions were lost, re
placed in passages by unintended
Del Mar’s new versions,
Gardiner said, “will defuse the im
age of Beethoven as a flawed, ca
pricious genius who never knew
how to finish his pieces, who was
in a state of permanent indecision
as to how his music should sound.”
“Beethoven, despite his ex
tremely untidy handwriting, will
emerge as extremely clear in his
thinking, someone who knew ex
actly what he wanted.”
