Rave reviews for Hope's Britten Violin Concerto performances in Copenhagen
September 2010: Daniel Hope has just given two critically acclaimed performances of Benjamin Britten's Violin Concerto at the new Copenhagen Concert Hall, with the Danish National Symphony Orchestra and conductor Thomas Dausgaard.
Søren Schauser of the "Tidende Berlingske" newspaper writes:
“Just play, or save the world at the same time? Daniel Hope wants to do both.
The British virtuoso with a clear vision ranks among the hottest names in classical music. Fortunately, the man stops by from time to time – like this week in the Danish Radio Concert Hall.
Fortunately? Yes. Because he produces a sound which is out of this world. His sky high notes float like honey into one's ears, almost branding themselves there forever........the air stands still under the sound of Hope’s violin. And, of course, Hope played a Schulhoff-piece as an encore – a composer who died in a Bavarian concentration camp. And for the second time; the air stands still. Brilliantly done........”
Henrik Friis of the "Politiken" newspaper writes:
”Violin-magician Daniel Hope proved to be exactly the happening, impressively versatile violinist that his steady stream of successful cd’s from all corners of classical music history have demonstrated. He appeared in Thursday’s concert with a playful yet poetic version of his compatriot Benjamin Britten’s Violin Concerto........Hope did everything to keep a sense of danger in the material, and the combination of Britten’s surprising ways of reinventing old and worn out formulas, together with Hope’s lively expression, made the piece sound like a classic that you didn’t know you had missed. Few composers - and few artists like Hope and Dausgaard – can spellbind a whole auditorium with a simple scale .......At the same time they succeeded in making the instruments dance together........it was profoundly musical.---“
