“I am delighted to be extending my contract with the Zurich Chamber Orchestra ahead of time …” Daniel has told The Violin Channel.

“We have achieved an enormous amount in such a short period … several tours and residencies in Europe and Asia … two albums for Deutsche Grammophon - and major growth in our subscription series in Zurich ...” he has said.

“The Zurich Chamber Orchestra was the first ensemble I heard as a boy of four ... to be directing it 40 years on is a dream come true.”
