Beethoven belongs to the second type-the constructive type， one might call it. This type serves as an example of my theory of the creative process in music better than any other， because in this case the composer really does begin with a musical theme. In Beethoven‘s case there is no doubt about it， for we have the notebooks in which he put the themes down. We can see from his notebooks how he worked over his themes -how he would not let them be until they were as perfect as he could make them. Beethoven was not a spontaneously inspired composer in the Schubert sense at all. He was the type that begins with a theme； makes it a preliminary idea； and upon that composes a musical work， day after day， in painstaking fashion. Most composers since Beethoven’s day belong to this second type.

The third type of composer I can only call， for lack of a better name， the traditionalist type. Men like Palestrina and Bach belong in this category. They both are characteristic of the kind of composer who is born in a particular period of musical history， when a certain musical style is abut to reach its fullest development. It is a question at such a time of creating music in a well-known and accepted style and doing it in a way that is better than anyone has done it before you.

The traditionalist type of composer begins with a pattern rather than with a theme. The creative act with Palestrina is not the thematic conception so much as the personal treatment of a well-established pattern. And even Bach， who composed forty-eight of the most various and inspired themes in his Well Tempered Clavichord， knew in advance the general formal mold that they were to fill. It goes without saying that we are not living in a traditionalist period nowadays.

One might add， for the sake of completeness， a fourth type of composer -the pioneer type： men like Gesualdo in the seventeenth century， Moussorgsky and Berlioz in the nineteenth， Debussy and Edgar Varese in the twentieth. It is difficult to summarize the composing methods of so diversified a group. One can safely say that their approach to composition is the opposite of the traditionalist type. They clearly oppose conventional solutions of musical problems. In many ways， their attitude is experimental - they seek to add new harmonies， new sonorities， new formal principles. The pioneer type was the characteristic one at the turn of the seventeenth century and also at the beginning of the twentieth century， but it is much less evident today.
