Premiered at a concert to raise funds to help those wounded at the Battle of Hanau Beethoven himself said he was motivated 'by nothing but pure patriotism and the joyful sacrifice of our powers for those who have sacrificed so much for us'.

Far from a bombastic work, the 7th symphony moves from the solemn and majestic, through expressive lamentations to the joyful conclusion that greets the end of hostilities.
