Is it possible to prune back my appricot tree back to this size? If yes at what time should I do it? After fruiting?

It is possible but over a 2 or 3 year timespan. One should not remove more than about 20%-30% of a trees foliage in a particular year. Pruning should be done while the tree is dormant, around late winter.

Absolutely NOT. If you do the tree will start to put on new growth and it will not have time to harden off. Freezing weather will then damage or kill this growth thus damaging the tree, probably severely.
