Escape to Paradise: The Hollywood Album - music by Rozsa, Waxman, Eisler, Korngold, Weill / Daniel Hope, violin; Sting, Max Raabe, Jacques Ammon

Notes & Reviews:

In his latest album Daniel Hope shines a new light on Hollywood scores as he takes a widescreen musical journey, seeking out the echoes of exiled European composers, such as Miklos Rózsa, John Waxman, Hanns Eisler, Erich Wolfgang Korngold The center piece is the famous Violin concerto by Erich Wolfgang Korngold The album also contains contemporary soundtrack classics such as Schindlers List, American Beauty and Cinema Paradiso to reflect on the strong musical influence the Exile composer had and still has on contemporary film composers Guest artists featured on this record include Sting, who performs in a new arrangement on "The Secret Marriage" - a Hanns Eisler composition (originally with lyrics of Bertold Brecht, to which Sting wrote his own lyrics back in 1987) - and German singer phenomenon Max Raabe on the famous "Speak Low" by Kurt Weill Top Arranger Paul Bateman provided brand new orchestral arrangements "Escape to Paradise" is both a historical and musical concept, curated by Daniel Hope, to a theme that he has personal associations for: his maternal grandparents fled Hitler's Germany for South Africa, and his parents then fled the apartheid regime for England Daniel Hope violin Sting
