This is a the most amazing cadenza ever played with a Mozart Violin Concerto! It's eight minutes long, and worth every second.
I posted this some time ago, but it's worth revisiting now because the violinist, Gilles Apap, is visiting Minneapolis this week for the Cedar Cultural Center's Celtic Fiddle Festival. So probably no Mozart on Thursday, but likely an amazing evening. After all, if he can incorporate Celtic Fiddle into a Mozart concerto, he could certainly do the reverse! This guy does it all.
