* In the first movement of Music/LudwigVanBeethoven's Symphony No. 9, when the main subject returns after the development, it comes as a massive storm in the orchestra, with the timpani in particular hammering away long after the point when you think they could have stopped. The musicologist Susan [=McClary=] famously described this passage as having "the throttling murderous rage of a rapist incapable of attaining release", although she toned it down when she published the same paper in her book ''Feminine Endings'', by which time she'd received a shit-storm of criticism from people who were under the impression that she was comparing Beethoven to a rapist.

** In the Scherzo of Music/LudwigVanBeethoven's Symphony No. 9, the timpani are tuned an octave apart from each other (an unconventional tuning, but also used in the finale of Symphony No. 8). The Scherzo's main theme begins with a descending octave, which the timpanist gets to play loud and unaccompanied several times.
