Editorial Reviews

Part maverick, part genius, total virtuoso, David Garrett, 25, has been surprising people since before he was four years old. It was then that his father gave him a violin (he was having a tantrum because his older brother had a violin teacher) and, without any lessons, the toddler picked it up and began playing. Fast forward just four years and David was already one of the foremost violinists in the world working with the most celebrated teachers and performing solos with legendary orchestras and conductors. With his natural talent, the input of the finest music teachers in the world and a spirit unusual in the sometimes fusty world of classical music, David has emerged as fully-formed, fully-rounded - not to mention highly attractive - artist. He has already played for Popes and princes and presidents (the German President saw David when he was just 11 and was so impressed he actually set about securing him a priceless 1718 Stradivarius: "I used to leave violins on buses and in hotel rooms when I was younger, but not this one") but a whole new audience awaits.

Can't wait to see him on tour in the US soon.

Highly recommend this CD to anyone who has never heard classical music as it would reverse their thinking that classical is not tops.

I first heard of violin prodigy David Garrett in a Barnes and Noble in-store play, and picked up his eponymous (US) debut David Garrett. However, I felt that the North American version, which was cobbled together from 2007's "Virtuoso" and 2008's "Encore," was a tad short. I went searching for other Garrett recordings only to discover that they're only available as super-expensive imports. After comparing tracklistings on Free, Virtuoso and Encore, I decided on the version of Virtuoso that has Pachelbel's Canon in D (the other pressing does not). Many of the tracks are also on "David Garrett" (Carmen, Nothing Else Matters, Csardas, Duelling Banjos), but there are other superb additions such as Morricone's "La Califfa," Paganini's Rhapsody (best known from Andrew Lloyd Webber's divine Variations), Bernstein's "Somewhere," Rimsky-Korsakov's "Flight of the Bumblebee" (for which David set a Guinness World Record for fastest performance on live TV at 66 seconds, or 13 notes per second), Secret Garden's "You Raise Me Up" (check out the stunning original by Irish singer Brian Kennedy, NOT Josh Groban, on You Raise Me Up), and three original compositions, "Serenade," "Toccata," and "Eliza's Song."

Opening with La Califfa (of which Sarah Brightman did a stunning cover of on

David Garrett is absolutely outstanding!!! This CD is just beautiful to listen to.

I just ordered his newest CD "Classic Romance" heard a short preview of a song, it is going to be another outstanding CD.

I would recommend any of his music in CD~DVD~MP3,classic or crossover all are outstanding. Yes I am a fan.

This artist appeals to all ages and adds his unique blend of talent and passion to the music. Treat yourself to listening or viewing this remarkable young classical violinist. He has his own interpretation which is new and refreshing. His relaxed demeanor and romancing of the violin leaves the listener inspired and left wanting more. He has total command of his instrument as he and his violin mesh in oneness. One senses his originality while staying true to the past. He makes current the classics of the past. Truly there are no words to describe this highly talented musician. He instantly moved to the top of my list of favorites. He is without a doubt an inspired artist who transmits that inspiration listening to him. Can't hear enough from this fine young artist.

Had the pleasure of seeing David Garrett live in concert!!!!Please go and see him when he comes to your area you won't be disappointed!
He played many of the songs from Virtuoso,I highly recommend this CD it is like being there live.
David is really the master at fusing classical,rock and movie theme songs together in his style that anyone can enjoy.
His version of Somewhere is the most beautiful rendition I have heard to date.
This is an absolute must have CD!!!!!!!!!!!!
