About Daniel Hope
Regarded as “adventurous and brilliant” by The New York Times, Daniel Hope has toured the world as a solo and chamber virtuoso and is considered “among the best in the world as well as the most thoughtful, is as brilliant at Bach as Birtwistle” by The Observer (London). Hope begins his first season with New Century Chamber Orchestra in 2017-2018 as the newly appointed Artistic Partner. This position was created in order to provide artistic continuity throughout the search process for a permanent Music Director to succeed Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg, who stepped down at the end of the 2016-2017 season.
Daniel Hope, an exclusive Deutsche Grammophon artist, has earned numerous GRAMMY nominations, a Classical BRIT award, the Deutsche Schallplattenpreis and five ECHO Klassik Prizes. He previously recorded for Warner Classics and Nimbus, playing Bach, Britten, Elgar, Finzi, Foulds, Ireland, Mendelssohn, Mozart, Penderecki, Schnittke, Shostakovich, Tippett, Walton, and Weill. His recording of the Berg Violin Concerto was voted to be the “best available of all time” by Gramophone Magazine in 2010. His Mendelssohn CD for Deutsche Grammophon featuring the Violin Concerto and Octet was voted one of the finest Mendelssohn recordings by The New York Times in 2009.
As a music director, Hope leads chamber orchestras as violin soloist with ensembles including the Zurich Chamber Orchestra, Chamber Orchestra of Europe, Camerata Salzburg, and Concerto Koln. He has performed at the world’s most important festivals, such as the BBC Proms, and the Lucerne, Ravinia, Salzburg, Schleswig-Holstein, and Tanglewood festivals.
