Beethoven movement restored

A supposedly lost Beethoven movement has been put back together again.

A piece of classical music written by the legendary piano player and composer Beethoven has been meticulously brought to life by a professor from Manchester University.

The movement was written by the German maestro for his string quartet Opus 18 Number Two in 1799, but was later cut.

Now, just over 200 years later, professor Brian Cooper has magically put the movement together again, working with detailed sketches. Where there were gaps, he simply filled it in with what he thought was "right".

Professor Cooper said: "This movement is of particular importance as it stands out as the last substantial work that Beethoven composed in full and apparently had performed in 1799 before it was discarded and lost.

"With other works that he revised, like his opera Fidelio, discarded movements still survive more or less intact."

The performance of the movement will take place at a seminar open to the public at 2.30 pm on September, 29th in the Martin Harris Centre at the University of Manchester.
