Bristol Ensemble is joined by the extraordinarily talented violinist Gilles Apap and a chorus of voices from three of Bristol’s leading choirs for this celebration of the music of Mozart.
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 a brand new cadenza that he has created.
Singers from City of Bristol Choir, Exultate Singers and Bristol Youth Choir join the orchestra under the baton of conductor David Ogden to perform one of the most treasured and poignant works of the choral repertoire, Mozart’s Requiem.
