Five times the winner of the ECHO Klassik Prize, British violinist Daniel Hope has performed as soloist with some of the world's most distinguished orchestras and conductors. He is the winner of the Classical Brit Award, and has been nominated four times for a Grammy award.
A recent New York Times review summarized Daniel Hope 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.” Daniel Hope performs on the 1742 “ex-Lipin´ski” Guarneri del Gesù violin.
