David Garrett was a true child prodigy. He plays each piece precisely, and beautifully. Now, he is 28, still plays amazingly. He is perfect,he has everything. He has good looks, charming smile, nice talking skills, and most of all he plays music fascinatingly for everybody- he plays rock, jazz, pops. R & Bs, besides classical music. He is trying to make us happy.

I know David personally and he is a person full of character and emotions. The magnificent thing about this cd is that he manages to convey his feelings and emotions through the caprices without considering a thought for the technical challenge which is there for most violinists, but obviously not for him.

Garrett's dazzling technical precision and musical expression makes Paganini's fantastically difficult, concentration-challenging 24 Caprices a great pleasure to listen to!

The beautifully original and ravishingly lyrical 24 Caprices demand roller coaster scale runs, sweeping register leaps, cascading double-stop runs, wide-interval arpeggios, trilled octaves, mutating chromatic harmonies, entire composition played on the G string, Rossini opera flair and bel canto coloratura, athletic bowings (eg, flying staccato, ricochet ascending arpeggios, distant string crossings in contrasting sections, string-skipping playing notes on non-adjacent strings), dizzyingly fast plucked notes, wild race up and down the fingerboard, synchronizing high speed left hand fingerings and rapid right hand string change, and more, while sustaining dynamic string energy flowing forward projecting varying beautiful feelings through every different note.

Garrett plays it cool, eagerly exploring the violin's possibilities and emotional range to unlock mesmerizing melodies, intoxicating harmonics and exquisite tonal coloring in all registers.

P.S. This CD is an exciting introduction to Violin Virtuosity!

Caprice #9 is my favorite, but all of them showcase his early prodigious talent! If you think you may want to hear violin music rather than just piano or orchestral music, START with David Garrett!! I have ALL of his albums, now. Formerly, we listened to piano or orchestral music.

I love his crossover music, although I understand that he prefers classical music. He is doing what he can to bring forth a new generation of musicians. My granddaughters all started on the piano. The eldest added the guitar, and is now playing the violin!!! THANK YOU DAVID GARRETT!!

David Garrett is a phenomenon who works genuine magic on the violin. He can play any style of music and is thrilling to listen to. He has technique AND heart--a great combination. I don't know how he does it, but I hope he keeps doing it until he's 110.

If you are in you early years as violinist student, this a must in your study. Clear and brilliant execution with a clear sense of melody. Paganini Caprices are a must in a violinist formation. What a better way to learn if not from the great interpreters ???

Adding the piano adds a bit of musicality to the caprices which can sometimes seem like technical exercises. Garrett's playing is also superb. If you like Paganini, I think you'll like this.
