Daniel Hope and Friends


Wednesday, October 31, 2018 at 8 p.m.

Schwartz Center for Performing Arts
Emerson Concert Hall

Part of the 2018-2019 Candler Concert Series.

"A collection of theatrically vivid performances that make you want to dance, and occasionally to weep." - The Strand (UK)

Based on Daniel Hope's album of the same name, "Air: A Baroque Journey" traces the development of modern violin through the Baroque era as musicians and composers sought more extravagant and original ways to express themselves on this fascinating new instrument. His selections showcase the diversity of music produced during this era.

Hope plays the violin known as "Ex-Lipinski," created in 1742 by master Guiseppe Guarneri del Gesù.
