It is well-known that the animators who put Warner Bros. cartoons on the map were all fans of classical music: many cartoons are animations of Rossini overtures, for example, and some of the classic cartoon situations - my favorite being the chase off and over the cliff - make excellent depictions of devices used by classical composers of all sorts.
Beethoven's attention to detail is worthy of any animator:  how does he manage to enliven certain sounds more than others?  
How do we know that a moment of tension needs to be just so long and not an instant more?  or less?  
It is brilliant attention to the tiniest detail, worthy of any animator.
