Details

Perhaps the most recognizable piece of classical music ever written, Beethoven’s 5th Symphony rose to international prominence during World War II, when the BBC used the symphony’s famous four-note opening to preface daily radio broadcasts. Mimicking the sound of the letter “V” in Morse code (dot-dot- dot-dash), the first few notes of Beethoven’s 5th became closely associated with the Allied Forces’ quest for victory, and ultimately gave this masterpiece its nickname, the Victory Symphony. https://charlestonsymphony.org/event/beethovens-5th/2019-01-04/
