In Menuhin at 100, acclaimed British violinist Daniel Hope is joined by a talented string ensemble to pay tribute to the late, great Yehudi Menuhin, one of the most influential violinists of the 20th century. Hope may be making a bid for that 21st-century title as well. Labeled "adventurous and brilliant" by The New York Times, he's known for his musical and stylistic versatility, which he displays in this special concert presented by The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, the nation's premier repertory company for chamber music, at Alice Tully Hall. This eclectic salute features pieces by Bach, Vivaldi, Bartok and Mendelssohn, along with modern works like Glass' Echorus, El-Khoury's Unfinished Journey and Pärt's "Darf ich..." for solo violin, tubular bells and strings.
