Widely regarded as the most memorable and musically concentrated of Beethoven's orchestral works, his Symphony No. 5 is also one of the most popular works in the literature. With its unforgettable four-note motive, lean textures, and superb orchestration, it is a classic example of the thematic unification Beethoven developed during his middle period — a creative time during which his music exhibited unprecedented freedom of expression and exultation. This magisterial and magnificent work — reproduced here from the authoritative Litolff edition — appears in this edition in full score, with original instrumentation and bar-numbered movements. Ideal for study in the classroom, at home, or in the concert hall, this affordable, high-quality, conveniently sized volume will be the edition of choice for music students and music lovers alike.
