Product Description

2009 album from the non-conforming Classical artist. Garrett's unique, and wholly individual style, pays as much homage to Metallica as to Mozart. This self-titled release covers an incredibly diverse selection of repertoire, representing his love for many genres, and the ability to tackle each successfully. Michael Jackson's 'Smooth Criminal' is cleverly reinterpreted, as is Queen's ballad, 'Who Wants to Live Forever'. AC/DC's 'Thunderstruck' is given a memorable new twist, alongside, 'He's a Pirate' from Pirates of the Caribbean. Given his enduring commitment to his first musical love, David still includes some classical selections on this album including the last movement of Vivaldi's 'Summer' from The Four Seasons, and Bach's 'Air'. Not to be satisfied with only imaginative covers, David also displays his own deft writing skills with notable originals, including 'Chelsea Girl'.

Review

David Garrett is already the stuff of legend in him is enshrined an entire corpus of virtuoso violin art, expounded with a fearsome beauty beyond comprehension. --BBC Music Magazine

Wunderkind David Garrett grew up in Aachen, Germany and studied violin under Ida Haendel and Itzhak Perlman before graduating from Juilliard in 2004. As a child prodigy, he was subjected to a grueling rehearsal schedule of classical repertoire (he injured his back and shoulders recording Paganini: Caprices as a teen), but the freedom of NYC (including the huge music library at Juilliard and various clubs) opened up a new world of musical possibilities. David supplemented his income by modeling for print magazines like Vogue and Fashion Week for Armani while at Juilliard; his striking looks and broad crossover appeal have earned him the nickname "the David Beckham of classical music." Garrett's response? "He kind of drew a new audience to football, OK mostly female, but that's not a bad thing. I think that's why people actually say that because they know I really try very hard to get new audiences for classical music."

I first heard of David Garrett in a Barnes and Noble and was hooked. After watching numerous clips and interviews (both German and English) on YouTube, I was blown away by his utter confidence and poise. You can see at once that this is someone who truly loves music and his instrument (he plays both a 1717 Stradivarius and a 1772 Guadagnini, which he badly damaged after falling on it); just like growing up bilingually with a German father and American mother, he's equally at home as ambassador of classical and pop.

"David Garrett" is actually David's fourth solo album for Decca after

I heard about David Garrett on NPR recently and thought I would give it a listen. I love the way this CD has a great mix of some older fantastic classical pieces mixed in with modern day songs. The arrangements are wonderful and exciting and his violin skills are amazing!

It was the TV commercial that got me interested. And then I listened to the snippets available on Amazon. So I bought the whole album. I have listened several times to it and will now be buying more of this exciting artist's albums. Hard to believe I'd ever be a fan of the violin.

What a wonderful mix of classical/stage/movie music - the Michael Jackson song "Smooth Criminal" is great! Some of the music was so beautiful I got chills listening to it!

ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT! I love this CD!!!! I was first introduced to David Garrett on PBS during the airing of "David Garrett, Live In Berlin". I was mesmerized by him as a musician and as an entertainer and have been trying to get a copy of the performance ever since. Pure inspiration! I think kids and people of all ages viewing this performance would be moved to try this instrument for themselves. I know I am! I really enjoy classical music with a contemporary edge and it's the same with David Garrett. It's what makes this CD so very special. My favorite--- "Who Wants to Live Forever" by Queen. A side note: The tempo is perfect to listen to if you enjoy moderate to fast speed walking.

I heard David Garrett performing and talking about his music on Public Radio recently and it was very refreshing. I purchased this CD and have found it to be very entertaining with several very upbeat violin tracks on a wide variety of fairly well-known compositions. This is not a good choice for those looking for traditional classical violin music; but it's very enjoyable for those looking for something contemporary, fresh, and lively. Highly recommended.

I love this CD. I had heard an interview with David Garrett and some of the songs on NPR and decided to try to find it. I thoroughly enjoy it and will purchase more of his CDs in the future.

I am officially sold on David Garrett...he's remarkable and I'm so glad I discovered him. His talent is incredible and he's easy on the eyes! Don't be afraid to give violin music a try...this is NOT your grandmother's music...he performs a blending of different kinds of music and you would be amazed at his renditions of Metalica, Queen and Vivaldi! His selections are varied and shows his wide range of ability...give this one a try!
