Violinist Daniel Hope is presenting a new music talk show on German TV tonight. The Hamburg-based British musician's 50-minute show, called simply ...with Hope!, is being broadcast on ZDFkultur. Hope's guests for the first programme are Sting and pianist Hélène Grimaud.

The new show follows Hope's stints earlier this year as presenter and performer on the Arte TV channel's Arte Lounge programme, where his guests included Steven Isserlis, Gautier Capuçon and the Cuarteto Casals.
