In his book Beethoven for a Later Age, the Takács Quartet’s first violinist Edward Dusinberre describes the power of the Große Fugue and its razor-edged themes to ‘threaten and chase me … eroding sanity’.

The monumental composition is performed here as the finale to the String Quartet in B flat, for which it was originally written.
