Grand Fugue Dark Surrealism inspired by Beethoven’s ‘The Grosse Fuge’.
Grand Fugue ©2017 Galen Valle. All rights reserved. The Grosse Fuge was composed by Beethoven for string quartet in 1825, when he was almost completely deaf. The piece has always made me think of a spectral quartet playing endlessly in the key of nothing to the deaf ears of the sea – but that’s probably just me. Created from a great photo by Lor Myers and a fantastic tidal pools photo by FoxStox.
