     Beethoven was, as has been acknowledged by mankind, ahead of his time in many respects. With the Grosse Fuge he attempted to show us the beautiful, wonderous and awesome side of strange, of difference, of ugly. He attempted, and suceeded, to make us aware that everything around us has a rhythm, perhaps not the one we want to accept but the one that is there nevertheless. Yes, beautiful or ugly, within each slice of life there is a seed of wonder. With the choreography I attempted, through sillouette and movement, to show the beautiful pulse which lies just beneath the surface waiting for us to discover if we will only take the time open our eyes and ears,

Music ( From Wikipedia )

The 'Große Fuge' (or 'Grosse Fuge', also known in English as 'Great Fugue' or 'Grand Fugue'), Op. 133, is a single-movement composition for string quartet by Ludwig van Beethoven. A massive double fugue, it originally served as the final movement of his Quartet No. 13 in B♭ major (Op. 130) but he replaced the fugue with a new finale and published the Grosse Fuge separately in 1827 as Op. 133. It was composed in 1825, when Beethoven was completely deaf, and is considered to be part of his set of late quartets. It was first performed in 1826, as the finale of the B♭ quartet, by the Schuppanzigh Quartet.
