1808 and here's why:

The Fifth Symphony was premiered on 22 December 1808 at a mammoth concert at the Theater an der Wien in Vienna consisting entirely of Beethoven premieres, and directed by Beethoven himself.The concert lasted for more than four hours. The two symphonies appeared on the program in reverse order: the Sixth was played first, and the Fifth appeared in the second half. The program was as follows:

The Sixth Symphony
Aria: "Ah, perfido", Op. 65
The Gloria movement of the Mass in C major
The Fourth Piano Concerto (played by Beethoven himself)
(Intermission)
The Fifth Symphony
The Sanctus and Benedictus movements of the C major Mass
A solo piano improvisation played by Beethoven
The Choral Fantasy

I have a bootleg of this show that I downloaded from Beethovenateers. Total awesomeness.

Can't define the "greatest" year but anything between 1954 and 1977 rocks imho...

Thats a badge of honour. Aside from the 'welcome' insult, he hasn't insulted me since :?

Enjoy it Lumpy. That's DB actually admitting he's wrong, ya know, by making it look such that if he is wrong, then someone else must be even more wrong about whatever. Otherwise, he'd have to say "Thank you" for correcting his multiple errors.

Yes, because referring to me as "disco idiot" is a such a delightful thing to say. Not only that but coupled with the fact that almost every single post Lumpy Gravy has made in response to me, has been filled with joyous outbursts of love-induced wonderment. After all, he's the nicest person on the forum...

Real quick, I don't think "actually" belongs here.
And the capitalization... yeah, a little much much.
