Notes & Reviews:

Mendelssohn's beautiful 'Violin Concerto' - a work that fascinated the 6-year-old Daniel Hope in his early days of learning the violin. Though the teachers at his musical boarding school outside London forbade him from playing a piece they deemed too difficult for a child, Hope couldn't resist. He secretly practiced Mendelssohn in the bathroom until caught by his teachers, who summoned Hope's parents. For his DG debut Hope has chosen the "Urtext" version. The first version that Mendelssohn wrote was considerably revised according to the wishes of the violinist Ferdinand David for whom the concerto was originally composed. Now Hope has unearthed the first version from 1844 that still has all the elements that make this piece a hit but at the same time is much more passionate and vivid according to Hope.
