DANIEL HOPE WITH ZURICH CHAMBER ORCHESTRA EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, MICHAEL BÜHLER
“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.”
