Fun Facts

  • Leonard Bernstein viewed the Seventh as a comment on the breakdown of bourgeois society, praising it as “ironic and exciting and ultimately heartbreaking.”
  • In the third movement, the composer gives the cellos and double basses a dynamic marking of fffff, instructing them to ‘pluck the string so hard that it hits the wood’.
