A special concert in a stunning setting: British violinist Daniel Hope, who studied under the legendary Yehudi Menuhin, performs Max Richter’s iconic composition “Vivaldi Recomposed”, a re-imagining of the Four Seasons, with the Epoque Orchestra on a floating stage on the Vltava against the backdrop of Prague Castle and overlooked by the imposing National Theatre complex. The concert also features the world premiere of a new version of Czech composer Bedřich Smetana’s “Vltava”, which is named after the river.
