Daniel Hope returns to the ARTE TV this December for Daniel Hope & Friends in New York. Usually captured at his Berlin home, this year’s edition of his annual holiday concert is broadcast from New York, where the violinist joins American soprano Ailyn Pérez, French pianist Lise de la Salle, Jamaican-American reggae star Shaggy, Sri Lankan pianist Rohan de Silva, Canadian pianist Bryan Wagorn, 16-year-old New York-based violinist Fiona Khuong-Huu and American jazz pianist and composer Marcus Roberts, appearing with his trio, for repertoire ranging from classical works to jazz numbers, traditional pieces and a Christmas classic. Celebrating friendship between nations, their festive program premieres in French and German versions on ARTE on December 22 at 5pm ET and in English on December 23 at 1pm ET on YouTube, where it will remain for streaming on demand.

“For the third consecutive year, the ARTE television network has asked me to produce a Christmas/Holiday Season special, featuring a wide variety of musical genres performed by some of the world’s finest musicians,” says Hope. “This is a continuation of my Hope@Home series, which I launched during the pandemic and which saw the creation of 150 episodes. This time, we will broadcast from the heart of New York City.”
