    Definitely "composition". (I'm a musician)

    Suggestion(musical) work
    The popular Beethoven work will be performed June 5.

    In many contexts it's just 'work'; that seems okay to me here.

    To me 'composition' is possible, but would fit better in a more technical context (i.e., music history, not advertising), or for a shorter piece. The same goes for 'piece (of music),' which is even more colloquial. 'Für Elise' is a composition, or more casually a piece, but the Fifth Symphony is a work.

    'Opus' in music has a special meaning (a piece or group of pieces with a catalogue number), so it doesn't sound right here.

    'Creation' is a little too poetic for my taste here.

    'Oeuvre' in English normally means a group of works, all the collected works of a writer or composer over his or her lifetime. I've never heard it used for a single work in this sense.
