Wolfgang Fuhr about his piano piece "131":

„Inspiriert ist das Stück von Beethovens Streichquartett No. 14, Op. 131. In der 7-teiligen Komposition wird das Anfangsthema des 1. Satzes aus dem Quartett in sieben Minimalismen variiert. Mittels der motivischen Reduktion, wie sie ja auch Beethoven im Quartett angelegt hat, wird der Meister dem schwebenden Hauptmotiv treu bleibend durch verschiedene kulturelle Filter gejagt.

Beethoven als Spät-Romantiker, Neu-Töner, Jazzer, Maqam- oder Balkan-Musiker und Impressionist: seine Musiksprache war eben schon immer universell.“
