Beethoven Fugue (manuscript discovered in 2005)

In the summer of 2005, an 80-page draft of Ludwig von Beethoven’s Grosse Fugue for Piano for Four Hands, written in Beethoven’s own hand, was discovered in a drawer at a Philadelphia seminary. It was quickly sold for $1.9 million to an anonymous buyer. You can hear the new piece at the NPR website.
