Beethoven and Shostakovich: Center Stage from Wolf Trap, Dec. 1, 5 PM

Jerusalem String Quartet

Beethoven's Grosse Fuge, despite being misunderstood and under-appreciated for years, has earned a place of its own in the chamber music repertoire.  Originally the final movement of his Op. 130 String Quartet in B-flat, Beethoven wrote another finale for that quartet, and published the Great Fugue separately, at least in part because of the enormous demands the work placed on performers.
