In his latest album Daniel Hope shines a new light on Hollywood scores as he takes a widescreen musical journey, seeking out the echoes of exiled European composers, such as Miklos Rozsa, John Waxman, Hanns Eisler, Erich Wolfgang Korngold

The center piece is the famous Violin concerto by Erich Wolfgang Korngold

The album also contains contemporary soundtrack classics such as Schindler´s List, American Beauty and Cinema Paradiso to reflect on the strong musical influence the Exile composer had and still has on contemporary film composers

Guest artists featuring on this record are no one less than Sting who performs in a new arrangement on The Secret Marriage a Hanns Eisler composition (originally with lyrics of Bertold Brecht, to which Sting wrote his own lyrics back in 1987) and German singer phenomenon Max Raabe on the famous speak Low by Kurt Weill

Top Arranger Paul Bateman provided brand new orchestral arrangements

Escape to Paradise is both a historical and musical concept, curated by Daniel Hope, to a theme that he has personal associations for: his maternal grandparents fled Hitlers Germany for South Africa, and his parents then fled the apartheid regime for England
