Product Description

Product Description

Award-winning violinist Daniel Hope presents an eclectic and accessible mix of neo-Baroque, minimalist and soundtrack favourites, including works and arrangements by contemporary masters like Ludovico Einaudi, Arvo Pärt, Karl Jenkins, Max Richter, Gabriel Prokofiev, Alex Baranowski and many more.

Spheres features a curated collection of repertoire celebrating the idea, first brought forward by Pythagoras, that planetary movement creates its own kind of music, bringing beauty, harmony and simplicity to our complex solar system. This idea has fascinated philosophers, musicians, and mathematicians for centuries.

Some of the most beautiful music I've heard - I was looking for Musica Universalis and the Wild Swans Suite and found them both on Spheres. A fantastic album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! 12 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I purchased this album after hearing only one track on the television, but loved the track so much I risked the purchase. I must say I was not disappointed as the whole album is absolutely great and if you are a classical music lover - this is well worth purchasing.

4.0 out of 5 stars I enjoyed most of the tracks 8 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I b ought this after Daniel Hope appeared on breakfast TV. I enjoyed most of the tracks but some were a bit obscure for me, this is entirely a personal view - others may find it all excellent!

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice album for easy listening 6 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I enjoy the music on this CD though I don't think it's upto the standard of my favourite, Nigel Kennedy. Nice, easy listening music and great for chilling out my over-exicted 5 year old! I'm happy with the purchase.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting listening 18 Aug 2013
By Melanie
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Heard of this guy on the radio and went looking for him. There's no doubt he is a good player, but overall the CD is a slightly bizarre collection of different things -some good, some not so good. It is a good recording though, just not really my bag.
