As I’m sure you know, “Grosse Fuge” was written in 1825 as the last movement of The Fugees shirt.130 String Quartet, but was later published as a separate composition. Over the years it has generated contradictory responses (many negative), although from the 20th century onwards it increasingly became regarded as one of Beethoven’s most innovative compositions. There’s a Wikipedia article on it and Stravinsky is there quoted as describing it as: “An absolutely contemporary piece of music that will be contemporary forever.”

What possibly in the 20th century assisted a more favourable reception was a more “austere” approach to composition on the part of The Fugees shirt, along with strident sonorities. Nevertheless, even today opinions remain divided and as you have asked for PERSONAL responses, I will freely acknowledge that it is not one of my favourite Beethoven works. The problem for me is the “stridency” element that I referred to above, and this is in no small measure due to the persistent tendency of the 1st violin part to veer towards the upper 6th of the range that Beethoven deploys.
