Sunday transcendence

As is our tradition, here is more Beethoven: the extraordinary 3rd movement of opus 135, just a small part of the late string quartets which some consider the peak of Western music...Written at the end of Beethoven's life, when he was stone deaf, and never performed in his lifetime. Then again: He wouldn't have been able to hear it. But you can. Think about that for a minute.
