Beethoven Composition of 1799 Completed in 2011

A British music professor has put his final touches on a discarded movement of Beethoven’s String Quartet in G after 212 years! Barry Cooper decided how to proceed based on some sketches the composer left over and said this is probably the first time it’s been performed since then. NPR covered this story, too, with the bonus of sound clips. See what you think.
