“Symphony 5” by Ludwig van Beethoven

Ludwig van Beethoven (1770- 1827) composed this piece, which actually captures the rhythm of the opening few notes in Morse code that denote the number 5 or “V.” This opening was actually used during WWII to send Morse code messages. According to legend, Beethoven did not know what would be the opening for his Symphony 5, but while he was taking a nap, he heard the knocking rhythm on his door and it became the first few notes of the piece.
