Beethoven: String Quartet No. 13 in B flat major with Grosse Fuge Op. 130

Signum Quartet

Completed almost two centuries ago, Beethoven's Op. 130 and its vast finale, the 'Great Fugue', stand as one of the most monumental works in the quartet repertory.

Stravinsky considered the Grosse Fuge to be 'an absolutely contemporary piece of music that will be contemporary forever', a view certain to be reinforced when the Signum Quartet presents the movement in its original context in this recital.
