The Sofia Philharmonic Orchestra will have a new concert with British violinist of world renown Daniel Hope. Conducted by Maestro Nayden Todorov, Hope and the Sofia Philharmonic Orchestra will perform Violin concerto in B minor, Op. 61 by Edward Elgar, after which the musicians will be joined by the Bulgarian National Philharmonic Choir for a performance of Karl Jenkins' Requiem.

Hope has enjoyed a thriving international solo career for more than 30 years. Celebrated for his musical versatility and dedication to humanitarian causes, he has been recognized with a string of honours including the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany and the 2015 European Culture Prize for Music. 

The violinist was educated at London’s Highgate School and Royal Academy of Music, studying violin with Zakhar Bron, Itzhak Rashkovsky and Felix Andrievsky, besides working closely with his mentor Yehudi Menuhin, with whom Hope gave numerous concerts. 

The musician works with prominent conductors, including Simon Rattle, Christoph Eschenbach, Vladimir Jurowski and Christian Thielemann, and with the world’s foremost ensembles, including the symphony orchestras of Berlin, Boston, Chicago, London, Los Angeles, Paris and Tokyo.

One of the most prolific classical recording artists, Hope already has more than 30 albums to his name. 

An artist who uses his platform to engage in many spheres, Hope has written four bestselling books, all published by Germany’s Rowohlt Verlag. He contributes regularly to the Wall Street Journal and has written scripts for collaborative performances with the actors Klaus Maria Brandauer and Mia Farrow. In Germany he presents a weekly radio show for the WDR3 Channel and curates and hosts Hope@9pm, a salon-style music and talk event with cultural and political guests at the Berlin Konzerthaus.

Besides undertaking solo recitals, chamber concerts and concerto collaborations with the world’s leading orchestras and conductors, Hope directs many ensembles from the violin, succeeding Roger Norrington as Music Director of the Zurich Chamber Orchestra in 2016 and becoming Music Director of San Francisco’s New Century Chamber Orchestra two years later. An exclusive Deutsche Grammophon artist since 2007, he has an award-winning discography and is also a popular radio and television host who recently anchored the award-winning streaming and TV series Hope@Home. In 2019 he completed his 16th and final season as Associate Artistic Director of Georgia’s Savannah Music Festival and became Artistic Director of Dresden’s Frauenkirche Cathedral. In 2020, following in the distinguished footsteps of Kurt Masur and Joseph Joachim, Hope started his tenure as President of the Beethoven-Haus Bonn.

Now living with his family in Berlin, Hope plays the 1742 "ex-Lipinski" Guarneri del Gesu, placed generously at his disposal by an anonymous family in Germany.

Hope gave his first concert in Sofia in April 2021, again with the Sofia Philharmonic Orchestra.
