Chad Hoopes

Music that evokes the seasons and tells a story. Vivaldi’s Four Seasons portrays a year filled with hope, flowering growth, flourishing abundance, and the quiet gathering of energy for tomorrow. In one of the most evocative pieces of pastoral music, you will hear everything from singing birds, murmuring streams and soft breezes, to barking dogs, drunken country dancers, and an intense thunderstorm.

Hoopes frequently performs with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. Additionally, he has performed recitals at the Ravinia Festival, Tonhalle Zürich, the Louvre, and at Lincoln Center’s Great Performers series in New York City.

His debut recording with the MDR Leipzig Radio Symphony Orchestra under Kristjan Järvi featured the Mendelssohn and Adams concertos was released in 2014 on the French label Naïve. The recording was enthusiastically received by both press and public. His recording of Bernstein’s Violin Sonata with pianist Wayne Marshall will be released this autumn.
