Looking forward to more music in Odessa!"

 

Biography

British violinist Daniel Hope has toured the world as a virtuoso soloist for more than twenty years. He is renowned for his musical versatility and creativity, and for his dedication to humanitarian causes. Hope performs 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 was also the youngest ever member of the Beaux Arts Trio during its last six seasons. Raised in England and educated at Highgate School in London, Hope earned degrees at the Royal Academy of Music, where he studied with Russian pedagogue Zakhar Bron.

Called “adventurous and brilliant” by the New York Times, Hope was named “the most exciting British string player since Jacqueline du Pré,” by the London Observer. A recent New York Times review summarized him as “a violinist of probing intellect and commanding style,” and continued: “In a business that likes tidy boxes drawn around its commodities, the British violinist Daniel Hope resists categorization. Mr. Hope, a compelling performer whose work involves standard repertory, new music, raga, and jazz, emphasizes thoughtful engagement over flamboyant display. In his most personal undertakings, he puts classical works within a broader context – not just among other styles and genres but amid history, literature, and drama – to emphasize music’s role as a mirror for struggle and aspiration.”

Hope has performed in all of the world’s most prestigious venues and with the greatest orchestras including the Boston, Chicago, Toronto, and Atlanta Symphony Orchestras, as well as the major orchestras of Berlin, Birmingham, Dallas, Detroit, Dresden, Israel, London, Moscow, Oslo, Paris, Stockholm and Vienna. He has performed at the world’s most important festivals, such as the BBC Proms and the Salzburg, Lucerne, Ravinia, Verbier and Tanglewood festivals.

Highlights of Hope’s 2011-12 season include appearances with the Los Angeles Philhamonic and Leonard Slatkin at the Hollywood Bowl, the Britten Violin Concerto with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, his third appearance with the Oslo Phiharmonic Orchestra and recitals in New York, Washington, Aspen, and at Savannah Music Festival, where Hope has been Associate Artistic Director since 2003, and where he has recently renewed his contract until 2015. Hope is also the Artistic Director of the prestigious Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, a summer Festival set in one of Germany’s most beautiful provinces and hosting over 120 concerts for more than 70,000 visitors. In addition to the festival’s many chamber and symphonic concerts, Hope arranged a special multi-genre concert to raise awareness of the world’s climate change crisis, supported by HRH The Prince of Wales.

Over the years Daniel Hope has commissioned and performed dozens of new works. In the summer of 2009, he gave the world- and UK-premiere performances of Sir Peter Maxwell Davies’s second violin concerto, Fiddler on the Shore – written for Hope and the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra – in Leipzig and at London’s BBC Proms. In 2011 he gave the world première performance of Bechara El-Khoury’s “War Concerto”, also written for him, with the NDR Symphony Orchestra – he will perform the piece again in Berlin with the Konzerthausorchester in June 2012, and with the Oslo Philharmonic in September 2012. Hope has enjoyed close contact with composers such as HK Gruber, Sofia Gubaidulina, György Kurtág, Krzysztof Penderecki, Alfred Schnittke, and Mark-Anthony Turnage. He recorded Toru Takemitsu’s violin concerto, “Nostalgia”, with the composer. In 2008, Hope and Stewart Copeland, the former drummer of The Police, premiered Copeland’s Celeste for violin and percussion at the Savannah Music Festival.

In January 2012 Daniel Hope renewed his exclusive contract with Deutsche Grammophon, for whom he has made eight acclaimed recordings to date. His latest release for DG is a celebration of the highly influential violinist and composer Joseph Joachim (1831- 1907) and is centred around the Bruch concerto, a work with which Joachim is closely associated. The Bruch was recorded in summer 2010 with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra under Sakari Oramo. His previous release, Air. a baroque journey, looks at the history of the violin in the Baroque era. The CD pairs well-known works such as Pachelbel’s Canon, the folk tune “Greensleeves” and Bach’s sublime Air with rarely-heard compositions by Falconieri, Matteis, Geminiani and Westhoff, among others. Gramophone magazine called it “an exciting disc, with a heady, pied-piper power over the listener that comes from realizing that the bright sense of discovery once felt by these composers is being experienced just as much by their modern-day interpreters. You can’t ask for much more than that.” Hope’s 2007 recording for Deutsche Grammophon of the original version of the Mendelssohn Concerto and Octet was selected as one of the year’s best recordings by the New York Times.

Hope has earned numerous Grammy nominations, a Classical BRIT award, the Deutsche Schallplattenpreis, and six ECHO Klassik Prizes. Hope previously recorded for Warner Classics and Nimbus, playing Bach, Berg, Britten, Elgar, Finzi, Foulds, Ireland, Mendelssohn, Mozart, Penderecki, Schnittke, Shostakovich, Tippett, Walton and Weill. His interpretation of Ravi Shankar’s compositions, on the CD East Meets West, met with worldwide acclaim, whilst his world première recording of the original version of the Berg Violin Concerto (coupled with the Britten Concerto) was voted the “best available version” in a 2010 Gramophone magazine poll.

Beyond the concert stage, Hope has penned three best-selling books published in Germany, Russia, and Korea, titled Familienstücke (Family Album), a memoir, Wann darf ich klatschen?” (When do I applaud?) and Toi, toi, toi.

He has written scripts for collaborative performance pieces with the Oscar-winning actor Klaus Maria Brandauer, including “War and Pieces,” “Mozart Unplugged!” and “Dietrich Bonhoeffer – Someone Had to Do Something.” He also wrote “An Audience with Beethoven” for Mia Farrow, and “Forbidden Music,” featuring poetry and music written by prisoners at Theresienstadt. He has worked extensively as a presenter for both radio, film and television in the United Kingdom, Germany and the United States. His cutting-edge website features a video blog which he films and produces himself.

Yehudi Menuhin invited the 11-year-old Daniel Hope to join him playing Bartók duos on German television, launching a long artistic partnership consisting of over 60 concerts, including Lord Menuhin’s final concert appearance on March 7th 1999, in which he conducted Hope’s performance of Alfred Schnittke’s Sonata for Violin and Chamber Orchestra.

Hans Graf, Daniel Harding, Thomas Hengelbrock, Kurt Masur, Kent Nagano, Roger Norrington, Sakari Oramo, Michel Plasson, Mstislav Rostropovich and Christian Thielemann are among the many conductors with whom Daniel Hope has worked. Instrumental collaborators include Thomas Adès, Yuri Bashmet, Hélène Grimaud, Edgar Meyer, Kristian Bezuidenhout, Lynn Harrell, Zakir Hussain, Sebastian Knauer, Jaime Laredo, Katia and Marielle Labèque, Mischa Maisky, Mark O’Connor, Anne Sofie von Otter, Mark Padmore, Menahem Pressler, STING, and Tabea Zimmermann.


Hope regularly directs chamber orchestras from the violin including the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, Camerata Salzburg, L’Arte del Mondo and Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra.

Daniel Hope plays the 1742 "Ex-Lipinski" Guarneri del Gesù violin, put at his disposal by an anonymous family from Germany. He lives in Vienna.

Sebastian Knauer

 

 

The pianist Sebastian Knauer was born in Hamburg in 1971 where he made his debut aged 14. He now looks back on a career lasting more than 25 years. His intense musicality which characterises his unique style of playing, has led to innumerable successes, establishing his name throughout the international world of music.

He has given performances in more than 50 countries on four continents, each time appearing on the most reputable stages like the Konzerthaus and the Philharmonie in Berlin, the Philharmonie of Cologne and Munich, the Gewandhaus Leipzig, the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, London´s Wigmore Hall, the Théatre des Champs-Elysées in Paris, the Tonhalle Zurich, the Konzerthaus in Vienna, the Auditori Barcelona, the Sala Verdi in Milano and, looking further afield, the Lincoln Center New York, the Herbst Theater San Francisco, Miami´s Knight Concert Hall, the Téatro Municipal in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, the Oriental Concert Hall in Shanghai, the Forbidden City Concert Hall Peking, the Toppan Hall Tokyo and the Performing Arts Center Hong Kong.

For many years he has collaborated with his close friend, the conductor Sir Roger Norrington, and in 2006 Warner Classics published his all-Mozart CD with the Camerata Salzburg under Sir Roger´s baton. The German periodical Die Zeit claimed this as one of the best Mozart recordings of all times. Five years later he recorded for Berlin Classics  “Bach & Sons”, this time with the Chamber Orchestra of Zurich, again conducted by Sir Roger Norrington. This recording too won international acclaim. Amongst the reviews were the German magazine Stern with “brilliant”, The Neue Zürcher Zeitung with “fantastic” and Die Presse, Vienna, with “excellent”. Past October saw a third collaboration on CD with Sir Roger Norrington. Sebastian Knauer as soloist and acting as producer recorded piano concertos by Mozart and Beethoven under the title “Vienna 1789”. Fono Forum, RBB Berlin and BR Klassik excelled themselves with praises like “Huge Hit”, “Pure Enjoyment” and “Incredibly tasteful touch”.

Other conductors with whom Sebastian Knauer has collaborated are Fabio Luisi, Thomas Hengelbrock, Neeme Järvi, Vladimir Fedosseyew, Vladimir Spivakov, Ingo Metzmacher, John Axelrod, Jesús López Cobos, Simone Young, Michael Sanderling, Philippe Entremont and Jaap van Zweeden, with orchestras like Dresdner Staatskapelle, Bamberg Symphony, NDR Symphony, Konzerthaus Orchestra Berlin, Hamburg Philharmonic and Symphony, Orchèstre Les Siècles, Real Filharmonia de Galicia, New York City Opera Orchestra, Russian National Philharmonic, Shanghai Philharmonic, Chamber Orchestra of Europe and the chamber orchestras from Basle, Vienna and Tel Aviv.

Another aspect of his creativity is his unique programme planning, such as solo recitals, revealing relevant connections between the different compositions, or many projects in which he performs with his longstanding friend and duo-partner, the violinist Daniel Hope. Whether they appear in Europe, the USA or Japan – this duo earns enthusiastic acclaim from their audiences and the press. Their CD “East meets West”, issued in 2005, was rewarded with nominations for Klassic Echo and Grammy.

Sebastian Knauer has a particular affection for chamber music and has appeared with a number of renowned colleagues like the Emerson String Quartet, Phiharmonia Quartet Berlin, cellists Sol Gabetta and Jan Vogler, singers Anne Sofie von Otter, Bernarda Fink, Michael Schade, Olaf Bär, Hermann Prey, choreograph John Neumeier and Steward Copeland, percussionist of “The Police” in a variety of projects. He is a regular and welcome guest at many Festivals like Schleswig Holstein Musikfestival, Mecklenburg Vorpommern, Rheingau Musikfestival, Klavierfestival Ruhr, Beethovenfest Bonn, Musikfest Bremen, Schubertiade Hohenems, Vienna, Salzburg Festspiele, Gstaad, Vevey/Montreux, Bath, London, Colmar, Lincoln Center New York, Ravinia, Savannah,Santo Domingo and the Shanghai Arts Festival.

His repertoire is exceptionally extensive and multi-facetted. Time and again he is eager to discover new key areas, essential to his work. With his CD of  George Gershwin´s entire solo repertoire he celebrated in 1998 the 100th birthday of this great composer, including the solo version for piano of “Rhapsody in Blue”. Another recording from 2001 featured the three great American composers, Leonard Bernstein, Aaron Copland and Samuel Barber.

Together with the Hamburg Philharmonic Sebastian performed all of Mozart´s 27 piano concertos which he conducted from the piano between the years 1999 and 2002. This concert cycle  had been  specially designed for him. In 2007 he recorded the hitherto unknown “Sonate Oubliée” by Franz Schubert. A world premier recording, it received the highest praise from the press as being “masterful and a miracle in sheer elegance”.

As well as celebrating in 2009 Felix Mendelssohn´s  200th birthday with a CD entitled “Pure Mendelssohn”, which appeared by Berlin Classics and became the Gramophone Magazine´s  “Editor´s choice”, he devised, played and conducted a programme of all of Haydn´s piano concertos on four evenings during the same year together with the Bamberger Symphoniker.

In the course of 14 years Sebastian  created 28 programmes, entitled “Wort trifft Musik”.  Each time one composer is brought centre-stage and various readings, relevant to his life, are being given alongside the music, performed by Sebastian himself. For these evenings he engages famous German speaking actors such as Hannelore Elsner, Martina Gedeck, Iris Berben, Gudrun Landgrebe, Barbara Auer. For special projects he appears together with the Golden Globe winner Klaus Maria Brandauer. Some of these programmes have been recorded by Deutsche Grammophon, as, for instance “Bettina v. Arnim und Ludwig v.Beethoven in einem Weltmeer von Harmonie”.

There is no stopping Sebastian Knauer when it comes to his enthusiasm for organising events. In 2012 he established his very own Festival mozart@augsburg of which he is artistic director. During the first half of September he offers concerts in Mozart´s city Augsburg, presenting artists like András Schiff, Menahem Pressler, Philippe Entremont, Sir Roger Norrington, Daniel Hope, Jan Vogler, the Emerson String Quartet, Lars Vogt, Christian Tetzlaff, the Artemis Quartet, Hannelore Elsner, Klaus Maria Brandauer, Alfred Brendel, Rudolf Buchbinder, the Zurich Chamber Orchestra and the Vienna Concert-Verein.

Sebastian Knauer has retained his home in his birthplace Hamburg, where he has traced his roots back to the 18th century, but by now he has become a true World Citizen.
