    German electronic band Klangstabil made a computer-voiced song out of the notation of this game.



    If anyone knows why they picked this game among millions, please do enlighten us.

    It /might/ be included on a DVD by Dr. Helmut Pfleger that they have?

    This game is very close to Hanham, James - Steinitz, Wilhelm New York 1894.


    Ends with the same mate.

    Just read the title of this thread...so I suppose you knew that.

    Apparently he won 1st in this tournament, and this was just after he lost his title to Emanuel Lasker. (Source is wiki)

    I don't really know why they chose this game, just trying to provide useful information.

    Are you saying the game I posted /isn't/ Hanham - Steinitz? I got the notation from chesslive.de after searching for the names.

    Which one is the correct notation, then? (and which one does the song follow?)

    I dunno which one is the correct version; the game I posted came from the chesslabs database I think. Either way, they're very similar. They both end the same position, though one game ends one move sooner.
