With this album, created during lockdown, Daniel Hope presents a personal collection of timeless classics by Schubert, Elgar and Pärt, several beloved traditional songs and a brand new arrangement Misa Criolla, a mass by Ariel Ramírez that is inspired by South American folk music. "Music has a tremendous power," Hope said. "This album is my attempt to send out a ray of hope and to provide people, myself included, with a sense of support and perhaps even consolation."

Galvanized by the unprecedented worldwide crises that characterized 2020 and encouraging creative recovery from them, the cellist launched this major new project last fall to capture something of that collective experience through the music of composers with strong and distinctive voices in a panorama of styles. Volume 2 features works by Christopher Cerrone, Viet Cuong, Avner Dorman, Vijay Iyer, and Angélica Negrón. BELOW: Fro m the album: "Room to Move for Cello Octet" by · Inbal Segev · Viet Cuong
