For the British-Latin American violinist Daniel Hope, all musical approaches are born of curiosity. He therefore shows us that Vivaldi explored the sounds of his own era just like Toru Takemitsu, who was equally fascinated by electroacoustic music and the popular music of his country. In this concert, Mendelssohn’s romanticism, the lyrical compositions of the Franco-Lebanese composer Bechara El Khoury, and the exaggerated violence of Shostakovich forge surprising musical associations, which would have delighted one of the greatest musicians of the 20th century, Sir Yehudi Menuhin. Menuhin had no reservations about performing alongside jazz musicians and players from cultures beyond the boundaries of Europe. This concert is a fine tribute to the violinist, who died in 1999.
