Daniel Hope plays the violin because his mother Eleanor landed a job with Yehudi Menuhin, first as his secretary, and then as manager for the world star. He could have chosen a different instrument but growing up in the environment of the famous violinist and educator made an impression on him. So, he chose the violin and went on to become one of the most gifted violinists of our time. A performance of Mendelssohn’s violin concerto with the violin virtuoso Pinchas Zukerman, which Hope experienced in his early childhood, left a deep impression on him: “When I heard it, I said to my father: Daddy, I want to do that too! To this day, Pinchas Zukerman has the most beautiful violin tone I know,” says Daniel Hope about his musical awakening. The evocative atmosphere of St. Bartholomew’s Church in Wesselburen provides the perfect setting for the great chamber music of Mozart, Beethoven, and Brahms, which Hope will perform together with Pinchas Zukerman and his wife – cellist Amanda Forsyth – as well as pianist Simon Crawford-Philipps.
