Another great review for Daniel Hope's Shostakovich recording
On 12th March 2006, Anna Picard gave Daniel Hope
's recording of Shostakovich
's Violin Concertos with the BBC Symphony Orchestra
and Maxim Shostakovich
a 4-star review in the Independent on Sunday
. She said, 'Daniel Hope has a distinctive voice and impeccable technique. His tone is radiant, his bowing beautifully controlled, and his phrasing has a searching quality ideal for Shostakovich.'
Ths CD also includes one of Shostakovich's most popular pieces: the Romance from The Gadfly
. This performance corrects a wrong note that Hope says has “plagued the ‘Romance’ since its first performance”.
