Editorial Reviews

He moves between two musical worlds ... and it seems as if two hearts beating in his chest: David Garrett in the world of classical music celebrated his international breakthrough. But that was not enough. He has finally re-invented, with its crossover albums conquered the rest of the world and sparked enthusiasm everywhere. After his spectacular success in the pop-rock world around David Garrett now with the new album "Legacy" to his roots, to mark the foundation of his skills and also the beginning of his extraordinary journey. "It's not what life is about, it is easy to make, but to do something right," said David Garrett's drive, the diversity of its projects more complex and challenging, rather than simply to repeat. His great role models Nicolo Paganini, Fritz Kreisler, Isaac Stern, and obliged, David Garrett for "legacy" with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Ion Marin and the Concerto for Violin and Orchestra in D major, Op. 61 by Ludwig van Beethoven (1770 - 1827) was added. David Garrett is an artist who tried quite in the tradition of the violin virtuoso, combining old with new, without forgetting their roots. So he has decided to arrange next to Beethoven's Violin Concerto, works by Fritz Kreisler (1875-1962) and to re-record. Fritz Kreisler has suffered any almost forgotten Violin Concerto in the concert halls of the 20th Century, brought back and given wonderful cadences. It is natural to the combination of Beethoven and Kreisler. Fritz Kreisler was a violinist, composer and arranger. He scooped out a generous hand and provided over again with new works, such as of Pugnani, Corelli or Tartini. He later admitted that the works of him came in the style of the composer. David Garrett on his new album 'Legacy' six works by Fritz Kreisler for violin and orchestra, and the 18th Variation from Rachmaninoff's Paganini Variations arranged for piano and orchestra again. In the latter showed David's research shows that the arrangement for violin and orchestra is also by Fritz Kreisler. With the recording of the Violin Concerto by Beethoven meets David Garrett a lifelong dream and highlights after his three crossover albums "Virtuoso", "Encore" and "Rock Symphonies" that the journey is more to his musical roots as a return: it is the start a new chapter of his amazing success story that brings together two worlds as there are only a few successful artists on the planet.

1. Beethoven: Allegro ma non troppo [Violin Concerto in D, Op.61]
2. Beethoven: Larghetto - [Violin Concerto in D, Op.61]
3. Beethoven: Rondo (Allegro) [Violin Concerto in D, Op.61]
4. Kreisler: Praeludium and Allegro in the style of Pugnani
5. Rachmaninov: Variation 18 [Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, Op.43]
6. Kreisler: Caprice Viennoise, Op.2
7. Kreisler: Variations on a theme of Corelli in the style of Tartini
8. Kreisler: Romance: Larghetto on a theme by Carl Maria von Weber
9. Kreisler: Tambourin Chinois, Op.3

Last summer,I was fortunate enough to hear David perform most of the selections on Legacy live at the Verbier Music Festival. As much as I love his crossover material,nothing matches experiencing the virtuosity,emotion,and pure perfection of his classical interpretations.It is a huge shame that many of his most fervent fans here in the U.S. have never been privy to David Garrett,the classical musician etraordinire .It is a treat that defies description.By all means, BUY Leagcy!

Addition to my original review: Last night, I attended our city's symphony orchestra featuring Beethoven's Violin Concerto. Later I listened to my Legacy CD with David Garrett playing the concerto. It reminded of the astonishing power he conveys when he plays. What an amazing talent.

I understood the release date of Legacy to be November 4th, but it turned out to be a European release date. As I didn't wish to wait, I bought the album from amazon.de and it was well worth the rush. David Garrett plays every piece with elegance and skill and with the passion we expect whenever he picks up his violin. The Beethoven violin concerto and especially the Kreisler Praeludium & Allegro are beautiful and beautifully played.

If you like classical music, and if you like to hear classical music performed with incredible talent, you should buy this CD. Friends from Germany introduced me to David Garret nearly 3 years ago, by mailing me a CD. The CD cover showed a handsome young guy, holding a violin. I thought, "Oh dear." While I like and appreciate all music (except rap, which isn't music), classical was not always necessarily at the top of my list. So imagine my surprise when the first song on the CD turned out to be a kick-butt version of Michael Jackson's "Smooth Criminal." I was driving at the time, rocking out to such amazing music. A minute or so into the next song, I had to pull over. It was "Who Wants to Live Forever" (which I later learned was made famous by Metallica), and is so beautiful that it brought tears to my eyes. Since then, David brought out another mostly rock-themed CD, "Rock Symphonies," which I highly recommend. Imagine a violin with the range, nuance and emotion of a human voice. Amazing.

I've been fortunate enough to have seen David Garrett in concert twice (in Reno in 2010, and in Sacramento in 2011), and he continues to amaze. Aside from the fact that he is drop-dead gorgeous, he's the most talented musician I've ever heard. (Oh, and my German friends are a little jealous because they've been trying to see him in Europe for a few years, where he is a HUGE deal, but have been unable to get tickets -- they sell out almost instantly, plus the tickets are three- to six-hundred Euros per.)

"Legacy" is pure classical. No rock infusions. And it's absolutely beautiful.

To write or try to describe how music can move you deeply, it could need probably a complete chapter, so to speak. I have been following David's trajectory for several years. Be awared that David Garrett is not an improvised violinist, he is a great performer, a consolidated musician, a Virtuoso. It is amazing and wonderful how a young man, since his early 11 years old, was so mature with his performance, and has come to be into an astonishing violinist. The first time I heard one of his recordings I was so attracted and fascinated, the violin sound was so brilliant, deep and moving at the same time that I couldn't help but only to feel great joy. Since then I have bought every CD. And "Legacy" is by no mistake a precious gift for your ears. The recordings selection and interpretation are magnificent, not only by David's virtuosity as a Violinist but the Director Ion Marin and the Orchestra complete the circle. If you are David's big fan you would enjoy it as I have but if you only have heard David Garrett by reference, you won't be dissapointed with this Legacy Master Piece.

Another outstanding release from one of the very best violinists of all time, IMHO. I have been a fan since late 2009 & I find it amazing that he just keeps getting better & better. I was never really interested in classical music before I heard DG. As fate would have it, I discovered him at the same time I was wrapping up a college class in Music Appreciation. The class, which naturally covered the entire history of music, caused me to become a great deal more open-minded about all genres of music. Enter David Garrett. Love his classical & crossover. His emotional, passionate play goes right to my soul. I believe there is nothing this man cannot do with his instrument. It truly is like a part of his body. Whether or not you are a classical fan, if you are at least open-minded, you will LOVE this cd. I would bet on it!

Legacy is a wonderful CD by David Garrett. Any CD is wonderful by David Garrett! This one features more of the classical, rather than contemporary adaptations of music, and is a treat for the ears to listen to. I love anything by David Garrett and you should see him at a concert if he comes to your town. You will be thrilled to see him play.
