OUT NOW | Violinist Daniel Hope's New Double 'Belle Epoque' CD Set [LISTEN]

Deutsche Grammophon has announced the release of British violinist Daniel Hope's new double CD set: 'Belle Epoque'

Deutsche Grammophon has announced the release of British violinist Daniel Hope's new double CD set: 'Belle Epoque'.

Recorded with pianists Lise de la Salle and Simon Crawford-Phillips and the Zürcher Kammerorchester, the double CD set features Chausson's Concerto for Violin, Piano and Strings, Webern's 'Four Pieces' for Violin and Piano - and a large selection of parlour pieces by Debussy, Elgar, Ravel and Schoenberg and more.

"I have been fascinated by the Belle Époque for more than twenty years ... it was a time of great creativity in the arts but also of major upheaval and turmoil ..." Daniel has this week told The Violin Channel.

"I thought it might be interesting to trace some of the musical influences throughout the period and to produce a chronological look at the sights and sounds of the time ..." he has said.

"The discovery of many beautiful, lesser known works and perhaps the chance to re-examine some more familiar pieces in the context in which they were conceived," he has said.
