Abstract: This effort is among Beethoven's final works and is the last of the three quartets composed to meet the commission of Prince Nikolai Golitzin. No. 12, Op. 127, was written in the period 1823-1824 and was followed by the Fifteenth, Op. 132, in 1825. This Thirteenth Quartet was completed in early January 1826, but its original finale was replaced by a new one finished in late November 1826. This second finale is said to be Beethoven's last completed compositon. The composer agreed to replace the original, the so-called Grosse Fuge, Op. 133, at the behest of his publisher.

But Beethoven probably also recognized that the Grosse Fuge was a rather outsized piece, too grand to serve as the finale for the B flat Thirteenth, a great piece in its own right, but a work whose character in the preceding five movements is less epic-sounding. ...
