The Symphony No. 7 by Walter Piston is a symphony dating from 1960. Piston's Seventh Symphony was commissioned by the Philadelphia Orchestra Association, and was premiered by that orchestra, conducted by Eugene Ormandy, on February 10, 1961. The symphony was awarded a Pulitzer Prize in 1961, which was the second time for Piston-his first was in 1948 for his Third Symphony (Archibald 1978, 266–67).

Symphony 7 has some atonal moments introduced in the 1st movement which has varying moods but mostly agitated. Piston creates a tension that pervades the movement with only momentary periods of respite, one of which provides the symphony's conclusion. The writing is far more interesting than that of Symphony 5. The 2nd movement is plaintive, almost to the point of despair, but strangely beautiful and moving. Walter Piston needs no advocacy. He is recognized as one of the American masters and one of the country's major 20th Century symphonists, with an output of eight such compositions written between 1937 and 1965 - yet, given his reputation, he is certainly not over-represented in the recorded catalog: by my count, only 3, 4 and 6 have had more than one recording (a broadcast.
