Riddle Seven

Riddle Seven: E #D E #D E B D C A

Difficulty: 6
Interest: 9

A piano! Those who are musically inclined might recognize the notes in the title as the beginning of the Für Elise by Beethoven. However, the flavor text mentions that 59 is not the one. This could be useful.

The text also mentions marriage and Nohl, which is also a reference to the answer you are looking for.

The references to Alex and the orange clock effectively refers to the movie "A Clockwork Orange", which brings more references to Beethoven, in case you did not get the title.

Next Level

*Spoilers*

Für Elise is also known as the WoO 59, meaning that another WoO might contain the answer.

The reference to the marriage and Nohl is that Elise was not a real person, but rather a romantic nickname (or simply mistranscribed handwritings) refering to the lady he dedicated this piece to.

The reference to Alex and the orange clock is a reference to the movie "A Clockwork Orange", which will bring you to references to beethoven.
