The Symphony #5 in c minor, Op67, was written by Ludwig van Beethoven in 1804-1808. It is one of the most popular and best-known compositions in classical music and one of the most often played symphonies.
The symphony was first performed in Vienna's Theater an der Wien in 1808. The work achieved its prodigious reputation soon afterwards. E.T.A. Hoffmann described the symphony as "one of the most important works of the time."
This arrangement of the first movement is made to suit a large flute orchestra. It is scored for 6 C Flutes, 2 Alto Flutes, 2 Bass Flutes and Contrabass Flute.
