Grosse Fugue Deconstructed

March 22nd 7pm

Beethovens Grosse Fugue was condemned by critics and rejected by his publisher, but today, many people regard it as a profoundly wonderful work. Here is a unique opportunity to explore the piece with the Villiers Quartet in a very special way.

The members of the quartet will be sitting amongst the audience in different areas of the room, sharing their explorations and conversations, and inviting us to experience this fascinating piece from right inside the quartet.

After the interval, they will perform Grosse Fugue, using the alternative version Beethoven wrote in response to his publishers rejection of the original composition.

The Villiers Quartet are special friends of Highgate Sessions and it’s wonderful to have this opportunity to welcome them again.  

Concert tickets are £25 - complimentary wine and soft drinks are available throughout the evening.  Under 18’s -  for each adult ticket you buy, get a free ticket for a child.
