Beethoven's Apple... by © Janis Zroback
Clear

Currently unavailable for purchase



“A Fifth of Beethoven” is a disco instrumental recorded by Walter Murphy and the Big Apple Band. It was adapted by Murphy from the first movement of Beethoven’s 5th Symphony.
A very funky piece from the 1970’s, it was one of the most popular and memorable pieces of music from the disco era.
The “Fifth” in the song’s title is a pun, referencing a liquid measure approximately equal to one-fifth of a gallon, a popular size for bottles containing hard liquor, as well as Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony from which the song was adapted
.

I was inspired both by the orchestra’s name and the music…the images in the background which reference classical music in general, tie the whole together..
