Hope became the violinist of the Beaux Arts Trio in 2002. His burgeoning career led to his decision to leave the Beaux Arts Trio, which in turn led to the decision to disband the ensemble. The Beaux Arts Trio, with Hope as the final violinist in the history of the ensemble, gave its final concerts in August 2008.
Hope has served as an associate artistic director of the Savannah Music Festival. In April 2015 he was named the new music director of the Zurich Chamber Orchestra, effective in 2016. On 16 March 2018, at the conclusion of a joint performance by the Zurich Chamber Orchestra and New Century Chamber Orchestra at which he served as concertmaster, Hope was announced as the latter ensemble's new music and artistic director.
In March 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Hope began a series of over 100 live concerts broadcast on Arte. These broadcasts under the title "Hope@Home" reached an audience of millions. They began as house concerts filmed at his home in Berlin. Appearing with him were artists, often well known, who were also living in the city. With the easing of lockdown in the summer, it became possible to use other locations (Hope@Home on Tour) before the series came to a temporary halt. In November, as social distancing tightened across Europe with the second wave of the pandemic, the series resumed in Hope's living-room, this time with a focus on young performers, as Hope@Home Next Generation. In mid-November the Hope@Home team travelled to San Francisco where Hope was able to perform with the New Century Chamber Orchestra and other artists. Returning to Berlin, the series continued into December.
Hope is in his second marriage to the painter Silvana Kaiser. The couple lived in Vienna and moved to Berlin in 2016. He holds Irish and German nationality.
In 2020 Hope released a disc of highlights from the Hope@Home broadcasts and a Christmas compilation.
He has recorded commercially for Deutsche Grammophon since 2007.
Awards for recordings
Hope was recognised in the Echo Klassik awards. Often stylized as ECHO Klassik, this was Germany's major classical music award in 22 categories.
