Brilliant 5 star review of Daniel Hope's Bach disc in the Independent on Sunday
In the Independent on Sunday
on 9th September 2006, Anna Picard awarded Daniel Hope
's new Bach CD 5 stars:
'Though soloist Daniel Hope rightly gets star billing in this exquisite recording, honours should be shared with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe's leader - (and co-soloist in BWV 1043) Marieke Blankestijn, cellist Richard Lester, double-bassist Enno Senft, theorbist Elizabeth Kenny, harpsichordist Kristian Bezuidenhout, and, in the Fifth Brandenburg Concerto, flautist Jaime Martin.
Sensitively decorated, glowing of tone, and alert to the harmonic arguments, these are beautifully poised interpretations that breathe with the music.
A modern instruments recording that rivals, if not beats, period instruments for intimacy and elan.'
