Notes & Reviews:

Daniel Hope reveals yet another facet with this recording honoring Joseph Joachim, a central figure of 19th-century musical life. The central piece is Bruch's Violin Concerto, it's violin part completely reworked, at Bruch's request, by Joachim into the form we know today. Daniel Hope plays the concerto with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra under Sakari Oramo.

"This tribute to a giant of the 19th-century violin is an engaging run around both Joachim the performer and Joachim the composer. Big-hearted Daniel Hope, backed by the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic under Sakari Oramo, seems equally at home in the wide open spaces of Bruch's violin concerto (which the master totally revised and improved) or the warm intimacy of Joachim's own delightful Romanze for violin and piano. Hope maintains that the wonderfully lyrical Notturno Op 12 is the epitome of the term "romantic" – touching and inspiring rather than wild and passionate – and in his hands it's hard to disagree." -The Observer

"Hope's way with the Bruch: Violin Concerto No 1 is lively, burning with gypsy passion. Temperatures calm down for Joachim's own Romanze and his equally endearing Notturno." -The Times

"The major offering here is Bruch's evergreen First Violin Concerto, which Daniel Hope plays with cliche-free, heartfelt intensity. He radiates espressivo allure in Joachim's own Romanza and Notturno...The Joachim connection is fascinating, and Hope plays each piece as a music gem in its own right" -Classic FM

"The Bruch is finely and vividly recorded. In Oramo's hands the orchestration acquires a rich glow, with solo lines brought out most expressively. Hope brings to his interpretation glorious, full tone brilliance (in the finale) and expansive phrasing...The pieces with piano are all beautifully played" - Gramophone
