 Q:   Ask a Question about BEETHOVEN SCORE       
One of Ludwig van Beethoven's most revolutionary works has been discovered by a librarian cleaning out a cabinet in a Pennsylvania after more a century.

There was 80-page manuscript on a piano version of Grosse Fuge, which might be written by Beethoven, during final months of his life when he was completely deaf. The work was described by scholars of the German composer.

The lost work came to light in July when Heather Carbo, a librarian at the Philadelphia, was cleaning out a cabinet. "It was on the shelf, I was in shock as soon as saw it," she further added to New York Times that,"I had heard about a Beethoven manuscript, so I recognised immediately that what I had found that."

This manuscript was great musical mysteries since it was auctioned in Berlin in 1890. It is written m ainly in brown ink and was described furiously by the New York Times as a scattering of notes across the page, with lots of changes and checking.

Grosse Fuge was given as the finale for the group in B flat major, Op 130, which Beethoven began in May 1825 and completed in September of same year. It is a notoriously difficult work.

He later produced a version of piano, and it was a manuscript reworking that has been discovered in Pennsylvania. Stephen Roe of Sotheby's said it was an amazing: "The manuscript was known for a brief description in a catalogue in 1890 and it has then never seen by Beethoven scholars.

Maynard Solomon,a world expert on the composer and biographer of Beethoven, who selected pages from the manuscript, and said that it was an important find. "It is in good condition.

Dr Roe said about manuscript that it was written in brown and black ink, sometimes over pencil, and it includes red crayon. It shows the extent of Beethoven's reworking's and includes corrections. Occasionally the paper was rubbed through having small holes and smudged alterations and many pages pasted over the original.

The New York Times said that 'This document gives us rare insight into the imponderable process of decision making by which this quartet movements was made over into a work for piano four hands."

The manuscript last surfaced at an auction in Berlin in 1890 where it was seen that it was purchased by William Howard Doane, a Cincinnati industrialist and hymn writer.
