Daniel Hope - Escape to Paradise / WFMT ' New Release Of the Week'

Bookmark and Share

In his latest album, Daniel Hope shines a new light on Hollywood scores, seeking out the echoes of exiled European composers such as Miklós Rózsa, Franz Waxman, Hanns Eisler, Erich Wolfgang Korngold, and more. The centerpiece is the famous Violin Concerto by Korngold. The album also contains contemporary soundtrack classics such as Schindler's List, American Beauty, and Cinema Paradiso to reflect on the strong musical influence the exile-composer had and still has on contemporary film composers.

Daniel Hope: Escape to Paradise on 'Deutsche Grammophon' is the WFMT - Chicago: NEW RELEASE OF THE WEEK.
