Classical at the Freight: The Great Fugue, plus Malinowskiâs Music Animation Machine

Classical at the Freight: The Great Fugue, plus Malinowski’s Music Animation Machine

Beethoven’s Grosse Fuge was an almost-crazy experiment in dissonance and disruption, penned by the completely-deaf composer near the end of his creative life. Called “repellent” and “incomprehensible” by his peers, Stravinsky consided it “an absolutely contemporary piece of music that will be contemporary forever."

Benjamin Simon leads members of the award-winning youth orchestra Palo Alto Chamber Orchestra in a performance of the fugue, preceeded by an introduction on Beethoven and his musical development.
Stephen Malinowski’s brilliant Music Animation Machine graphics will be shown during the performance, adding a visual layer to your listening experience which will let you actually see the musical patterns of this complex work as they unfold in real time.
