Symphony No. 4 in B major op. 60
Symphony No. 5 in C minor op. 67


After his avant-garde »Eroica«, Beethoven returned to more classical ground with his fourth symphony. No wonder then that this symphony, which these days tends to be underestimated prematurely, was one of his most successful symphonic works during his lifetime. With the striking »da-da-da-DUM« at the start of the fifth symphony, Beethoven delivered one of the most famous motifs in all of music history. He first started dedicating himself to the work in 1803, but it would not be finished until March 1808, making the Fifth one of the works that took the composer the longest to complete. The nickname »Symphony of Fate« (»Schicksalssinfonie«) did not come from Beethoven himself, but refers to a statement by Beethoven’s secretary and biographer Anton Schindler. When he asked Beethoven about the opening motif of the symphony, he is said to have replied: »this the sound of fate knocking on the door«.
