Composer William Hill offers a companion piece for Beethoven's Seventh.

Composer William Hill writes in the notes that his "Symphony No. 2 is subtitled Beethoven 7.1 due to its numerous references to Beethoven's great 7th symphony, and is designed as a companion piece for that symphony." The brainchild of conductor Lawrence Golan, the "Point-One Series" is an ongoing project consisting of the commissioning and recording of contemporary compositions that are musically linked to great masterpieces of the orchestral repertoire. The objective is to help create a body of high quality contemporary works whose chances for a viable future are increased by the natural place within orchestral concert programming that they have. The first release in this series included Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 6 and Peter Boyer's Tchaikovsky 6.1 (TROY1027).

Review:
"The Symphony No. 2 (Beethoven 7.1) by American composer William Hill can certainly hold its own very well...Conductor Lawrence Golan...and the Lamont Symphony Orchestra...provide this work with an exemplary world premiere performance, and play it with a confidence reserved only for old acquaintances." (Classical Music Sentinel)
