Work of the "Eighteeth Cadaqués Orchestra International Conducting Competition’s Repertoire".
Beethoven conceived his Grosse Fuge as the sixth and final movement of his String Quartet in B flat major, Op. 130, written in 1825. But the length, density, rhythmic obsessiveness, and rhetoric bordering on violence that characterised this finale quite defeated its first audience (and probably the performers too). The composer was thus persuaded to allow his publish, N. Artaria, to bring out the Fugue as a separate work, and a year later he wrote a new, lightweight finale for the Quartet. Even today, the Grosse Fuge is considered very demanding by both executants and listeners.
