The 5th's glorious finale.

Because of the Yom Kippur Holiday there was no classical post yesterday.  So, I will try to make up for it by posting the well known great masterpiece of Beethoven, his symphony #5.  Probably the most well known of all classical symphonies is Beethoven's 5th.  Especially, the opening movement's "fate knocking at the door" motif.

To me though, the 5th symphony's last movement's stirring triumph and glory theme is the one I like the most.  With it's prolonged exciting climax, the conclusion always brings concert goers to their feet with shouts of Bravo!

Turn up the sound, play in full screen and enjoy the conclusion of Beethoven's most well known masterpiece.
