Comment"Outstanding" (Observer), "brilliant" (The New York Times) violinist Daniel Hope traces the journey of four adventurous composer-performers across Europe, thrilling kings and audiences alike. In Hope's words, his album shows "how diverse Baroque music was. 'Air' mixes the most sophisticated and revolutionary compositions of the day with irresistibly rhythmic, improvisatory, sometimes downright funky dance music. In those days it wasn't only desirable to be able to improvise, it was a law. It all culminates in a work by Bach whose title is my inspiration for this collection." - From The album's back cover - Great performance, captured with high technical standard. It's joyful to listen. - the uploader -
