Hope’s long-awaited second Deutsche Grammophon album is an explosive kaleidoscope of Vivaldi’s magical music, including La Follia and Tempesta di Mare. It finds him reunited with the esteemed Chamber Orchestra of Europe for their third partnership in the recording studio. Hope has chosen a selection of the composer’s greatest violin concertos “as good as any of The Four Seasons“ (Hope). Presented by passionate, energetic performers this music is guaranteed to provide an uplifting and scintillating listening experience.
Vivacity and technical brilliance combine with Vivaldi’s timeless appeal for an energetic formula.
A highlight of the programme: Daniel Hope has invited Anne Sofie von Otter to contribute an exquisite aria from Vivaldi’s opera Andromeda liberata: “Sovvente il sole“ (Perseo).
