Bristol Ensemble is joined by the extraordinarily talented violinist Gilles Apap for this, his UK orchestral debut.
Hailed as a true violinist of the 21st Century by Yehudi Menuhin, Gilles Apap is a classical violinist who has also become widely known for his remarkable ability to integrate a variety of musical genres. Gilles not only crosses boundaries, he unites music with his distinct talent for incorporating styles of music as diverse as American oldtime, Irish, and Gypsy fiddling, with the standards of the classical repertoire. In this performance he brings his unique talent to a performance of Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 5, including giving the premiere of a brand new cadenza that he has created.
The programme also includes music inspired by the folk idioms of different countries including Britten’s St Paul’s Suite and Bartók’s Romanian Folk Dances.
