Sometimes, the thing that makes you is right under your nose. Such was the case for Wolfgang Gartner, the California DJ that struck gold with a reworking of Beethoven’s 5th Symphony. The appropriately titled “Wolfgang’s 5th Symphony” was born when Gartner was looking through old demos and found a reworking of the original song that his 14 year old self created back in 1996. Classical music has a long history of being messed around with by artists in many genres, so the fact that the idea came to a house DJ is not surprising in and of itself. What did catch Gartner offhand was what happened next: “Wolfgang’s 5th Symphony” blew up.
