New Century Chamber Orchestra and Daniel Hope release six “Hope@Home” concerts

Posted on: November 20, 2020

“In March of this year, as the pandemic shut performances down all over the world, [violinist and conductor] Daniel Hope began a series of 14 daily concerts live from his living room called Hope@Home,” writes Janos Gereben in Tuesday’s (11/17) San Francisco Classical Voice. “The music director of San Francisco’s New Century Chamber Orchestra is also working with orchestras in Berlin and Zürich … but he kept Hope@Home going … and raised tens of thousands of Euros for artists in need…. Now, Hope … and NCCO will be featured in six free ‘delayed-live’ episodes of the Hope@Home digital TV series seen daily, beginning Nov. 18.… All six episodes will be archived and available for viewing 30 days after the air date…. The first episode streams on Wednesday, Nov. 18 at 10 a.m. PST on the ARTE website…. Among the series highlights: Jennifer Higdon’s ‘Quiet Art’ from Impressions, Carlos Simon’s An Elegy: A Cry From the Grave, Philip Glass’s Echorus, and George Walker’s Lyric for Strings, as well as works by Aaron Copland, Gabriela Lena Frank, Florence Price, and Kurt Weill [plus] music of Edward Elgar and Antonín Dvořák, Grażyna Bacewicz, and Hans Krása.”
