Beethoven's Grave

Trick brain teasers appear difficult at first, but they have a trick that makes them really easy.

The tour guide was finishing the tour at Beethoven's grave and told everyone that if they listened very carefully, they could hear actual music coming from the grave. Everyone immediately fell silent and, sure enough, symphony music could be distinctly heard coming from the ground although it sounded as if it were being played backwards. What could possibly explain this?


Answer

Beethoven was de-composing.

I'm not sure about this, but i think Mozart doesn't even have a grave. He was buried in a communal "fosse" ( dunno the word in english).

sort of got a half smile.
only problem is that composing music doesn't mean playing it.... (sorry, had to nit pick)
i decided the solution was that someone was sitting on the ground playing music backwards...

This seems to me to fall under the joke category. There is an old joke that says old musicians don't die, they decompose. Didn't like this one at all. Sorry.
