Gilles Apap

“A true violinist for the 21st Century.”
-Yehudi Menuhin

"When I listen to your music, I can think clearly and then it comes to me a lot of strength and to do great things."
-a fan from Mexico

"Equally at home with Bartok and bluegrass, Mozart and the music of the Bulgarian ghettos, Gilles Apap is a violinist who defies categorisation."
-Josef Woodard

"Hey---where's Mozart?"
-Irate concertgoer during cadenza

[Gilles Apap] seems incapable of playing a single note in a way that isn't fascinating.
-American Record Guide, 2001
