“I have no hesitation,” wrote the great musicologist Sir Donald Francis Tovey, “in setting Dvorak’s Seventh Symphony along with the C Major Symphony of Schubert and the four symphonies of Brahms as among the greatest and purest examples of this art form since Beethoven.” In the heat of composing it, Dvorak wrote, “Wherever I go I think of nothing but my Seventh Symphony, which must be capable of stirring the world.”

  • Antonín Dvořák’s Symphony no. 7 has been called “Dvořák’s greatest symphony,” by Dvořák expert John Clapham.
  • Inspired by Johannes Brahm’s Symphony no. 3 Dvořák began writing his Symphony No. 7 in 1884 the same year that the Royal Philharmonic Society  elected him as an honorary member and coincidentally asked him to write a new symphony.
  • The piece debuted in 1885 at St. Jame’s Hall in London with Dvořák conducting.
