Walter Anthony Murphy, Jr. (born December 19, 1952) is an American instrumentalist, songwriter, and arranger who rose to cult status with the hit instrumental "A Fifth of Beethoven", a disco adaptation of some passages of the first movement of Ludwig van Beethoven's Fifth Symphony, in 1976, when disco was at the height of its popularity. Born and raised in Manhattan, Murphy attended the Manhattan School of Music and studied jazz and classical music. Upon graduation, Murphy served as an arranger for Doc Severinsen and the Tonight Show Band. In the early 1970s, Murphy wrote jingle music for television advertising and acted as the frontman of WAM, a soul-R&B band who frequently performed in New Rochelle. During the 1970s, Murphy developed interest in adapting classical music into disco, and mailed a demo tape to various record labels in New York. Although response was unimpressive, a rendition of Beethoven's "Symphony No. 5 In 'C' Minor" generated interest amongst the owner of Private Stock Records, Larry Uttal. Murphy agreed to produce the song under contract and recorded it in 1976, creatively dubbing it "A Fifth of Beethoven". The record was credited towards "Walter Murphy & The Big Apple Band" upon encouragement from the company, who believed it would become a hit if credited towards a group rather than an individual. However, two days following the record's release, Private Stock discovered the existence of another Big Apple Band; the record was later re-released and ...

Walter Murphy & The Big Apple Band - A Fifth Of Beethoven HD.wmv Audio HQ
"A Fifth Of Beethoven" was a disco instrumental recorded by Walter Murphy & The Big Apple Band. It was adapted by Murphy from the first movement of Beethoven's 5th Symphony. The record was produced by noted production music and sound effects recording producer Thomas J. Valentino. 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 (757 ml), a popular size for bottles containing hard liquor, as well as Beethoven's Fifth Symphony from which the song was adapted. "A Fifth Of Beethoven" was released in 1976 becoming Murphy's best-known work and his only Top 40 hit on the Billboard Hot 100, where it reached the #1 position for one week. It also went to number 10 on Billboard's Black Singles chart in the same year. Even though Murphy played nearly every instrument on the song, his record company cautioned that the record would stand a better chance if credited to a group rather than an individual. To Walter's annoyance, they came up with the name Walter Murphy and The Big Apple Band, only to discover two days after its release that there was already a Big Apple Band. The name on the label was eventually changed to The Walter Murphy Band and then simply to Walter Murphy. The song entered the Hot 100 at number 80 on May 29, 1976, and took 19 weeks to reach number 1, where it stayed for one week. Early in 1977, it was licensed to RSO ...

Ludwig van Beethoven (Bonn, 17 Dec. 1770 -- 26 March 1827) was a German composer and pianist.

Born in Bonn, then the capital of the Electorate of Cologne and part of the Holy Roman Empire, Beethoven moved to Vienna in his early 20s, studying with Joseph Haydn and quickly gaining a reputation as a virtuoso pianist. His hearing began to deteriorate in his late twenties, yet he continued to compose, conduct, and perform, even after becoming completely deaf. ♪ ♫ ♩ ♬ ♪ ♫ ♩ ♬ ♪ ♫ ♩ ♬ ♪ ♫ ♩ ♬ The Symphony No. 5 in C minor, Op. 67, was written by Ludwig van Beethoven between 1804 and 1808. This symphony is one of the most popular and best-known compositions in all of classical music, and one of the most often played symphonies. It comprises four movements: an opening sonata, an andante, and a fast scherzo which leads attacca to the finale. First performed in Vienna's Theater an der Wien in 1808, the work achieved its prodigious reputation soon afterwards. ETA Hoffmann described the symphony as "one of the most important works of the time". It begins by stating a distinctive four-note "short-short-short-long" motif twice. The symphony, and the four-note opening motif in particular, are well known worldwide, with the motif appearing frequently in popular culture, from disco to rock and roll, to ...
Walter Murphy - A Fifth Of Beethoven (instrumental) Saturday Night Fever soundtrack
Llewellyn Williams plays his arrangement Walter Murphy's 1976 disco hit "A Fifth of Beethoven", based (of course) on the central theme from the opening movement of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony. Recorded in 1980 at the old Mesa site of Organ Stop Pizza, when the ex-Denver Theatre Wurlitzer had four manuals and roughly 40 ranks and a Moderne/Waterfall-style console (now at East Sussex National Golf Club) - now at a much larger location elsewhere in Mesa, it has 78 ranks and the Brooklyn Paramount-style console seen here. Huge thanks to Lew as ever for sending me these fantastic recordings and permitting me to share them.
