The Violin Channel recently caught up with eclectic French violinist, Gilles Apap – for a fun game of VC Desert Island Downloads. 

We sat him down to pick his brain on which 5 CD recordings he would take with him to a deserted island – and how the tracks have helped shape him as a musician.

“First of all, how long do I have to be on this deserted Island?

Also, if there’s no computer it’s gotta be a tape player!
