Richard Tognetti and the Australian Chamber Orchestra rehearse an extract of Beethoven's magnificent Grosse Fuge, which The New Yorker music critic Alex Ross called “a musicological Holy Grail”, and “the most radical work by the most formidable composer in history.”
This is an early rehearsal of piece, ahead of the ACO's national tour entitled Beethoven & Mozart V.
