Dedication and bravura: He is considered one of the present day’s best violinists; the press has dubbed him the “most exciting British string player since Jacqueline du Pré”. Daniel Hope’s career began at an early age: Yehudi Menuhin himself took the 10-year-old under his wing and accompanied his artistic development as his mentor. Daniel Hope is acclaimed not only as a solo virtuoso and compelling exponent but equally for his musical versatility and creativity and for his commitment to humanitarian issues.
