About Daniel Hope

Described at one time in his publicity materials as "the British violinist," as if he were the only one, Daniel Hope is at least the most versatile British violinist of the early 21st century. An advocate of contemporary music, he has also performed Beethoven and Schumann with the period-instrument ensemble Concerto Köln, recorded music inspired by Indian classical composer/performer Ravi Shankar, partnered with actor Klaus Maria Brandauer in conceptual projects involving music and the spoken word, and recorded a pair of successful albums that use the familiar music of Antonio Vivaldi as a starting point for further creative activity. In 2021, Hope issued three new albums, including two as Zürcher Kammerorchester conductor, Serenades, and Hope. He also released a new recording of Schnittke's works for violin and piano with pianist Alexey Botvinov.
