The Ottawa International Chamber Music Festival
Gilles Apap

Gilles Apap is not your conventional musician.
He combines all the styles of music he knows into a new experiment.
He might start with what you recognize as Vivaldi's "Four Seasons,"
and then break into whistling or singing.

A classical piece might transform into a fiddle jig
or an old-time, down-home tune.

You can never predict what will happen at an Apap concert.

Traditionalists are often shocked at what he does with music.
Others are absolutely delighted.

In any case, hearing him is a rare experience.
I definitely recommend it.
