“The most exciting British string player since Jacqueline du Pré” (The Observer), Koerner Hall favourite Hope returns with his ensemble to explore the rich world of Irish music.

Hope has toured the world as a virtuoso soloist for 25 years and is celebrated for his musical versatility as well as his dedication to humanitarian causes. Winner of the 2015 European Cultural Prize for Music, he appears as soloist with the world’s major orchestras and conductors. In addition, he gives a dizzying array of solo recitals, chamber concerts, and directs many ensembles from the violin. He succeeded Roger Norrington as Music Director of the Zurich Chamber Orchestra in 2016 and is also Music Director of San Francisco’s New Century Chamber Orchestra since 2018.

“This violinist, now among the best in the world as well as the most thoughtful, is as brilliant at Bach as Birtwistle.” (The Observer)
