An opportunity to hear Beethoven’s most talked-about, astonishing and strongest piece for string quartet, the famous Grosse Fuge, as finale in op 130. Here he crossed all boundaries of what could be achieved with a string quartet’s four parts. Magnificent, marvelous and amazing. If the mood is right, you’ll leave this concert as a new person. Musicians from Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra with Sara Trobäck on first violin play this extraordinary quartet, and we’ll also hear parts from Beethoven’s sometimes painfully honest letters and diaries, read by actor Johan Gry. In the texts appears a man who philosophises about the arts, his deafness and the great task of providing music to humanity.

Point Music Festival is conducted with the support of the Sten A Olsson foundation for Research and Culture.
