Despite the pandemic, Vasko Vassilev came from Valencia to Bulgaria to play under the peaks of Bulgaria's Pirin Mountain, performing "Winter" from Vivaldi's Four Seasons, BTA reported. The performance is on the occasion of the World Cup in the giant slalom for men on February 27 and 28 and the World Championship for youth in alpine skiing from March 1 to 10 held in the ski resort Bansko.

The video became viral on social networks. Viewers can see breathtaking panoramas from the peaks of Todorka peak, Vihren, Kutelo, Strazhite, the Plato area, Banderishka polyana meadow, and the town of Bansko.

"I will not hide that it was a real challenge, literally painful for both the violin and my fingers, but I had the feeling of wholeness with the indescribable power and beauty of the peaks around me,"  Vasko Vassilev says.
