Notes & Reviews:

April 22, 2016 would have been the 100th Birthday of violin legend Yehudi Menuhin, and Daniel Hope dedicates a complete album to his former mentor and close friend. This new album is a beautiful selection of works mostly commissioned by/for Yehudi Menuhin as well as works closely associated with the great artist. Includes works by Mendelssohn, Vivaldi, Reich, Tavener, Elgar, Henze Bartok, Ravel and others.

Gramophone Magazine, April 2016
This release, celebrating [Hope's] mentor's 100th anniversary, is nothing if not authentic. All the repertoire has a connection to Menuhin, embracing everything from Baroque to contemporary classical music. The result is a showcase for his versatility... not to mention Hope's... [who] is at his most magnetic in the world of folk, which spotlights his particular blend of fire and refinement.

The Guardian, 3rd April 2016
Hope has created a loving homage.

BBC Music Magazine, May 2016
Such is Hope's exultant phrasing that it could almost be the Master himself playing. Indeed, part of the fascination of this carefully chosen programme, in which Reich, Tavener, Henze and Knumann rub shoulders with more traditional fare, is the way Menuhin's questing spirit has so clearly inspired Hope's own probing exploration of music of myriad genres and styles.
