It has been announced that British violinist Daniel Hope has been awarded a ‘Federal Cross’ Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany – for his work as a cultural ambassador for the country.

“Daniel reaches a global audience with his music … it is therefore all the more remarkable that he is also so deeply committed to social awareness and, with his music, sensitizes the public – by illuminating the past whilst looking to the future with them,” Cultural Senator for Berlin, Dr Klaus Lederer has said.

A student of Zakhar Bron, Daniel served for six seasons with The Beaux Arts Trio – and today performs and records regularly with many of the world’s top orchestras and conductors.

He currently lives in Berlin – with his wife, painter Silvana Hope.

Created by President Theodor Heuss in 1951, the ‘Federal Cross’ is regarded as Germany’s highest civilian accolade – and is presented annually to deserving men and women who have served to positively aid the country politically, socio-economically and intellectually.
