Gilles Apap returns to perform with the Symphony, where he served as our concertmaster for a decade. Hailed as a true violinist of the 21st century by Yehudi Menuhin, Gilles has built an international reputation for combining musical styles as diverse as old-time American, Irish, and Gypsy fiddling within the construct of the classical repertoire.
Equally at home with Bartok and bluegrass, Mozart and the music of the Bulgarian ghettos, Gilles Apap is a violinist who defies categorisation.”
