Notes & Reviews:

Called "adventurous and brilliant" by the New York Times, Hope was named "the most exciting British string player since Jacqueline du Pré," by the London Observer. A recent New York Times review summarized him as "a violinist of probing intellect and commanding style," and continued: "In a business that likes tidy boxes drawn around its commodities, the British violinist Daniel Hope resists categorization. Mr. Hope, a compelling performer whose work involves standard repertory, new music, raga, and jazz, emphasizes thoughtful engagement over flamboyant display. In his most personal undertakings, he puts classical works within a broader context - not just among other styles and genres but amid history, literature, and drama - to emphasize music's role as a mirror for struggle and aspiration."

This marvelous collection of 5 discs compiles all of Daniel Hope's solo recordings for Warner Classics. The redoubtable violinist's eclectic repertoire ranges from Bach and Mozart to Foulds, Schnittke, and Ravi Shankar, shining beyond former recordings of the works to create a new standard of excellence. Hope is joined at every turn by top-notch partners, from soloists to orchestras and conductors.
