Bristol’s professional chamber orchestra, the Bristol Ensemble makes its Cadogan Hall debut. It is joined by the extraordinarily talented violinist Gilles Apap who will be making 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 old-time, 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.
The programme also includes music inspired by the folk idioms of different countries including Holst‘s St Paul‘s Suite and Bartók’s Romanian Folk Dances.
Bristol Ensemble was founded in 1994 by its Artistic Director and lead violinist, Roger Huckle. It gives around 50 concerts each year in Bristol and around the South West, as well as recording for film and TV, and for soundtracks for other uses such as the video game industry.
