Program Notes

One of Beethoven’s best-known themes arranged by Scott Stanton for small bands, or those with instrumentation limitations. All students should be exposed to the great masters.

- Program Note by publisher


The Symphony No. 5 in C minor of Ludwig van Beethoven, Op. 67, was written between 1804 and 1808. It is one of the best-known compositions in classical music and one of the most frequently played symphonies, and it is widely considered one of the cornerstones of Western music.

First performed in Vienna's Theater an der Wien in 1808, the work achieved its prodigious reputation soon afterward. E. T. A. Hoffmann described the symphony as "one of the most important works of the time".

As is typical of symphonies in the classical period, Beethoven's Fifth Symphony is in four movements. The first movement opens with the four-note motif discussed above, one of the most famous motifs in Western music.
