EDITORS’ NOTES

A stylish player and imaginative programmer, Daniel Hope would never give us just a Mozart violin concerto album. Instead, as the title implies, he leads us towards the composer, putting him in context, and taking us down some intriguing and delightful byways. So, before Mozart’s ever-charming Third Concerto, he offers works by Gluck, Haydn, and Salomon. Coaxing crisp, sprightly playing from his Zurich Chamber Orchestra and contributing some impressive cadenzas, Hope offers a lovely collection—and the arrangement of the Rondo “alla turca” will make you smile with its box of musical tricks.
