Beethoven was a Baller

WELCOME! ENJOY!

String Quartet Op. 18 No.1 1st mvt. Written about 30 years before his Grosse Fugue

His Große (Grosse) Fuge
This piece was not well received at all in 1825-26, and a reminder as you may have learned at one time: He was completely and utterly deaf.

    Wow! I wonder what his inspiration for that was?

    • That’s a great question. And one that I definitely do not know! I am pretty sure that by the time he was at this age, completely deaf and in the final few years of his life, he knew music had to move in a different direction. I honestly (and have no basis for this thought) think he saw where music was going to go to in the next hundred years. Again, no basis, just a hunch!
