Daniel Hope, Zürcher Kammerorchester

Dance! (2CD)

Daniel Hope has long been fascinated by the power of dance to move and inspire. Taking listeners on a journey through seven centuries of music history, his latest Deutsche Grammophon album – Dance! – celebrates the rhythms that have set bodies in motion and lifted hearts since time began.

A magical, passionate, pulsating tour through history, Daniel Hope’s Dance! runs the gamut of western classical music from medieval times to the late 20th century. Dance touches everybody’s lives, and has always been deeply intertwined with music – as you can hear in Hope’s thoughtfully curated collection which spans seven centuries, including everything from a 14th-century lament to Wojciech Kilar’s 1986 work Orawa, via classics by Handel, Saint-Saëns, Florence Price, Duke Ellington, and many others.
