Using the power of music to uplift the spirit of citizens of the Czech Republic amid rising Covid-19 cases, British violinist Daniel Hope conducted a mesmerising performance on a floating stage on the Vltava river in the centre of Prague.
The violinist, who was accompanied by Prague’s Epoque Orchestra, performed the “Vivaldi Recomposed” by Max Richter, which is a reinterpretation of ‘Four Seasons’ by the Italian composer.
A video of the concert, which has now gone viral on social media, features the people sitting in boats and attending the show, while others stood near the bridge.
