Bechara El-Khoury & Daniel Hope "My Tribute to Yehudi Menuhin"
My tribute to Yehudi Menuhin »
"Yehudi Menuhin is the reason I became a violinist. As he used to say, I fell into his lap as a baby of two" declares the musician.
Among all the composition of great composers featured in this album (Mendelssohn, Reich, Vivaldi, Tavener, Henze, Elgar, Bartók, Enescu, Knümann, Ravel) we can listen to the marvelous, Bechara El-Khoury (b. 1957): Unfinished Journey for violin and strings Daniel Hope quoted as "a piece by the lebanese composer Bechara El-Khoury, a marvelous composition, a real homage to the lyricism of Menuhin as a soft of travel from East to West".
