Daniel Hope - My Tribute to Yehudi Menuhin
Daniel Hope (violin)
with Simos Papanas (violin), Chen Reiss (soprano), Daniel Lozakovitj (violin)
This year (2016) marks the 100th anniversary of violin legend Yehudi Menuhin, and Daniel Hope dedicates a complete album to his former mentor and close friend. After fleeing from the Apartheid regime in South Africa, and ending up in England, Hope’s mother was offered a job as a secretary to Menuhin, and later became his manager. Hope says Menuhin is the reason he became a violinist. This new album is a beautiful selection of works, mostly commissioned by/for Yehudi Menuhin including Takemitsu’s Nostalghia, Reich’s Duet for 2 Violins and String Orchestra and Henze’s Adagio. The Vivaldi Concerto RV 522 for 2 Violins was the piece Hope and Menuhin played together many times in the past.
