Violinist Daniel Hope has decided to celebrate Mozart's birthday with the New Century Chamber Orchestra and two (other) soloists: Menahem Pressler, and Sebastian Knauer. They'll play the Piano Concerto no. 23, on a program that includes the 29th Symphony, and Hope playing the third Violin Concerto. They'll give four Bay Area performances (Pressler will play on the birthday itself, on the 27th at Herbst Theatre.)

Hope recently returned to core repertoire with Journey to Mozart, an intimate exploration of Mozart's world comprising both works by the titular composer and pieces by his contemporaries Gluck, Haydn, Mysliveček and Salomon. Performed with the Zurich Chamber Orchestra, Journey to Mozart features two popular violin concertos by Haydn and Mozart (both in G Major), the famous Adagio in E Major, K. 261 and more.
