- Erwin Schulhoff Double Concerto for Violin and Piano – arranged by Daniel Hope from the original for flute and piano (world premiere)
- Mendelssohn Violin Concerto in E minor, Op. 64 (original 1844 version) listen
- Kurt Weill Symphony No. 2 listen
Witness the evocative power of Daniel Hope’s “astonishingly beautiful playing” (The Birmingham Mail) in a concert that pays tribute to three great composers whose music was suppressed under the Nazi regime. Inspired by the historical and personal significance this program holds for both Hope and Kahane — Daniel Hope’s family was forced to flee Nazi Berlin and Jeffrey Kahane’s grandfather was arrested on Kristallnacht — this performance celebrates the power of art to transcend adversity.
“You never know what the brilliant young British violinist… will do next. He has collaborated with actors on works that combine music and words and explored Indian music and jazz…” (The New York Times)
