Notes and Editorial Reviews

Award-winning violinist Daniel Hope presents an eclectic and accessible mix of neo-Baroque, minimalist and soundtrack favorites, including works and arrangements by contemporary masters like Ludovico Einaudi, Arvo Part, Karl Jenkins, Max Richter, Gabriel Prokofiev, Alex Baranowski and many more.

Spheres features a curated collection of repertoire celebrating the idea, first brought forward by Pythagoras, that planetary movement creates its own kind of music, bringing beauty, harmony and simplicity to our complex solar system. This idea has fascinated philosophers, musicians, and mathematicians for centuries.

Music of reflection, contemplation and relaxation.

Featured as main soloist on Max
