Feel the connection as rising star Daniel Hope performs Alfred Schnittke’s Sonata no. 1. This young artist worked so closely with the Russian composer that Schnittke’s widow entrusted him with a 1950 sonata discovered after her husband’s death. In his LACO debut, Mr. Hope also performs three Mozart fragments that never made it into concertos – the rondo and adagio composed in Salzburg in 1776 and the 1781 rondo from Vienna. Our program concludes with the dynamic intensity and mood-evoking themes of the 1788 symphony that stands as one of Mozart’s most creative works.

Daniel Hope is “the most exciting British string player since Jacqueline du Pré.? – London’s The Observer
