Composer: Ludwig van Beethoven (1770–1827)Composed: 1804–08First performed: 22nd December 1808, Theater an der Wien, ViennaGenres: Concertos » Piano Concertos Dedicated to: J. F. M. Lobkowitz Andreas Razumovsky

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 during the transition between the Classical and Romantic eras, Beethoven's Fifth Symphony is in four movements.
