Its a metric that would accurately evaluate how successfully a composer captures the spirit of Beethoven.

I'm being analogous in general with this bit, not literal, as that's not something that's put to the test. How successfully you capture the spirit of house music, or thrash metal, or funk is put to the test though. Veer too far and you leave that spirit and enter into another.
