Bristol Ensemble – Mozart 260 Celebration

Violin/Director Gilles Apap
Conductor David Ogden

Mozart Overture to The Marriage of Figaro
Mozart Violin Concerto No.5 in A
Mozart Requiem

Bristol Ensemble is joined by the extraordinarily talented violinist Gilles Apap and two 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. 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.

Also joining the Ensemble are singers from the City of Bristol Choir, Exultate Singers and Bristol Youth Choir under the baton of conductor David Ogden to perform one of the most treasured and poignant works of the choral repertoire, Mozart’s Requiem.

Children from Bristol Ensemble’s Preludes education project will be performing on the main stage from 6.30 – 7pm.
