Event Description

New Century Chamber Orchestra continues its 2018-2019 season with the return of British violinist Daniel Hope in his first appearances as the ensemble\\\'s new Music Director. Exploring the theme of "recomposition," Hope will appear as soloist for the San Francisco Premiere of Max Richter\\\'s complete Recomposed: Vivaldi - The Four Seasons from his 2012 bestselling Deutsche Grammophon album. Continuing as soloist, Hope will perform the 2nd Movement from Robert Schumann\\\'s Violin Concerto arranged by Benjamin Britten alongside a second Britten arrangement of Henry Purcell\\\'s Chacony in G minor. Rounding out the program are two popular Renaissance inspired works: Peter Warlock\\\'s 1926 work Capriol Suite based on dances by Thoinot Arbeau and Ralph Vaughan Williams\\\' Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis.

Using phased and looped excerpts from Vivaldi\\\'s The Four Seasons, Max Richter\\\'s 2012 recomposed work was written and recorded in collaboration with Daniel Hope on Deutsche Grammophon with whom Hope serves as an exclusive recording artist. The recording soon topped the iTunes classical chart in the United States, United Kingdom and over 22 countries and received rave reviews around the world. BBC Music Magazine lauded the work\\\'s "Inventive orchestra and solo sonorities" as "Evocative, arresting..." while NPR commented specifically on a "fiery performance by violinist Daniel Hope." With 130,000 copies sold, it has become one of the most successful classical recordings of recent times.

Previously appointed as Artistic Partner, a three-year position created to provide artistic continuity throughout the search process for a permanent Music Director, Hope was officially announced in March 2018 as Music Director of New Century Chamber Orchestra on a five-year contract through the 2022-2023 season.

$29 to $61.
