Product Description

The latest installment in young British violinist Daniel Hope’s flourishing partnership with Warner Classics, a partnership celebrated for its spirit of exploration; this new release applies that same sense of adventure to Bach’s most popular works for violin and orchestra, played with characteristic freshness and dedication.
Hope’s earlier recordings for Warners received the ECHO Klassik Prize – Germany’s most prestigious recording award – twice, and he was acclaimed in the New York Times for performances of ‘unsparing intensity and gritty incision.’
This recording highlights Hope’s roots as a classical violinist, following his pioneering recordings of the Berg & Britten Violin Concertos and his ‘crossover’ project East Meets West. Hope bases his performances on extensive research into original sources. No authentic manuscript of BWV 1042 exists, and Hope has prepared these performances in collaboration with Bach scholar Professor Christoph Wolff.
The “Brandenburg Concerto No 5” is arguably Bach’s most recognisable work and is undoubtedly one of his most loved.
Hope is joined in the Concerto for 2 Violins and Strings by Dutch violinist and co-leader of the COE, Marike Blankestijn.
Like Hope, continuo player Kristian Bezuidenhout is a young musician with maturity beyond his years. His performances of Beethoven’s Emperor Concerto and Schubert’s Die schöne Müllerin have been widely praised. The harpsichord used on the recording is based around a model on which Bach himself performed the Brandenburg Concertos. Bezuidenhout adds a unique sense of colour by performing the continuo parts between harpsichord, organ and arch-lute depending on the character of the music – common in the 17th century, but rarely adhered to today.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exactly What I was Looking For 4 May 2013
By AJ Aalto - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Did you know that Bach's Brandenberg Concertos have been shown in studies to boost serotonin levels in the brain? Dr. Joel Robertson calls music "Natural Prozac" in his book of the same title, and I don't doubt it. Daniel Hope plays with confidence, passion, and precision, and is an absolute delight to listen to. In an age where people buy fewer CDs, this is one purchase I do not regret one bit. Worth every penny.

2.0 out of 5 stars Tempi too fast! 21 Oct 2013
By Lawrence Lipson - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Daniel Hope plays with great technique and fine tone. But, in my view, the tempi chosen for the violin concerti are way too fast. Where's the fire? Everything is rushed and graceless. For me, the performances are unpleasant, unlistenable. Only the Brandenburg comes out a winner… a good performance. Bottom line: skip this one!
