24th Strings of Autumn Prague will take place from 11th September to 21st November. The festival features a mix of jazz, classical music, experimental music, and world music.
On September 19, British violinist Daniel Hope will perform Max Richter’s iconic composition ‘Vivaldi Recomposed,’ a re-imagining of the Four Seasons.
The special concert will take place in a stunning setting: a floating stage on the Vltava beneath the National Theatre between Slovansky Island and Legion Bridge, with a panoramic backdrop of Prague Castle.
Daniel Hope performed ‘Vivaldi Recomposed,’ composer Max Richter’s tasteful, new-classical reimagining of ‘The Four Seasons,’ at Rudolfinum at the 2013 Strings of Autumn festival. The concert was one of the most popular and acclaimed in the festival’s history.
So it is fitting that, in this momentous and challenging year, he returns to perform the piece as part of Strings’ ‘Prague Sounds Again’ initiative, an event devised as a celebration of the return to Prague of live music experiences shared in person with others.
In the period of lockdown during the COVID-19 epidemic, Hope broadcast a series of chamber music concerts from his living room in Berlin. The series was called ‘Hope@Home‘ and featured artists such as Sir Simon Rattle, Magdalena Kozena, Max Raabe, and Max Richter, and was watched by over 1 million viewers.
When: September 19th, 2020
Where: Floating stage on the Vltava
