Daniel Hope

Schnittke: Works for Violin and Piano

“In the summer of 1989, when I was 15, my ‘love affair’ with Alfred Schnittke’s music began”, recalls Daniel Hope. Three years later the violinist became acquainted with the Russian composer, studying with and performing for Schnittke many of his works over the next years. “A little more than 20 years after his death, I decided it was time to revisit his music and to pay a recorded tribute to his extraordinary talent. In my mind there is no more striking a talent in contemporary music than that of Alfred Schnittke.”
