Daniel Hope was born in South Africa and raised and educated in England, where he earned degrees at the Royal Academy of Music. When Hope was only eleven, he was invited by Yehudi Menuhin to play Bartók duos with him on German television. This launched a long artistic partnership consisting of over 60 concerts together. Hope appears as soloist with the world’s major orchestras and conductors, directs many ensembles from the violin, and plays chamber music in a wide variety of traditional and new venues. He is celebrated for his musical versatility and creativity – as well as his dedication to humanitarian causes. Hope has earned numerous Grammy nominations, a Classical BRIT award, the Deutsche Schallplattenpreis, and five consecutive ECHO Klassik Prizes. Devoted to contemporary music, Hope has enjoyed close contact with composers such as HK Gruber, Sofia Gubaidulina and György Kurtág. His 2013 album, Spheres, featured the world premiere recording of four works written for him.
