I am intrigued and puzzled by these two pieces of music and their similarities:

  1. Beethoven - Piano Sonata No. 28 1st movement in A major, Op. 101

This one is in A major, the first movement.

  1. Cold Mountain- Ada Plays, in D major

This is a piece of movie music played by Ada in the film Cold Mountain. My understanding on this is in D major.

I wonder are there

  • any analyses of "Ada Plays" which say that the music was inspired by Beethoven?

  • any theories/critiques comparing the two pieces?

Please provide sources/references/analyses.
