Daniel Hope, music director and violin
Featuring Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons
Founded in 1945, the Zürich Chamber Orchestra is recognized internationally as one of the leading ensembles of its kind. The orchestra’s broad-based repertoire extends from the Baroque (in historically informed performance on gut strings and with Baroque bows) through the Classical and Romantic eras to the present day.
British violinist Daniel Hope has toured the world as a virtuoso soloist for 25 years and is celebrated for his musical versatility as well as his dedication to humanitarian causes. One of the world’s most prolific classical recording artists, he has more than 25 albums to his name. Hope appears as soloist with the world’s major orchestras and conductors, also directing many ensembles from the violin.
The orchestra’s program features Hope conducting and performing Vivaldi’s most celebrated violin concerto, The Four Seasons.
