I remember the first time I heard parts of The Beatles' "Sgt. Pepper" album, especially that thundering piano chord in "A Day in the Life", I thought: in imitation of the Beethoven Piano Sonata #31. There's also some swirling dissonance by massed stringsa there somewhere that could have been influenced by Charles Ives's Symphony #4.
