Andrew Efimov’s dramatic time-lapse of the St. Petersburg, Russia is bursting with violins, skylines, fireworks, cargo ships and racing cars. What  way to start the morning!

Who is the violinist?

Would like to see musical credit

I'm quite certain that the music is entirely digitally real bowhair on tensioned strings with a human arm and fingers engaged in tone and pitch production was used.  The music is basically a (bombastic) derivation of Bach's Prelude II in c minor from Book I of the Well-Tempered Clavier.    I strongly prefer the original.

Not violins, plural, either - the young lady holds a viola.

Lovely photography and editing.
