David Garrett has touched hearts and astounded audiences around the world by carving out a unique and wholly new artistic path. In a thrilling performance that moves all ages, the young German violinist weaves classical standards like Vivaldi's works with rock and pop hits from the likes of The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith and Nirvana.

By Bundt Lust VINE VOICE on November 11, 2010
Typically, David Garrett's concert DVDs are only available in the US through PBS pledge drives. The footage is the same as his German concert DVDs, but the American PBS versions are noticeably shorter than their German counterparts, and "Rock Symphonies" is no exception. However, this time around Decca has put more thought into the total package. David's first concert DVD seemed rushed into production, lacked any sort of interactive menus, and cut between songs with no warning and frequently no introductions (this was in part due to the fact that most of David's intros are in German for a German audience). On "Rock Symphonies," the root menu is the same as the "Rock Symphonies" album cover, except the grey background rotates clockwise, giving the impression of movement. The "Chapters" menu features the promo photo of David standing on a rooftop with animated dark clouds sweeping across the sky. The "Bonus Features" menu is the close-up of David with eyeliner...gorgeous! There are two bonus tracks, "Bicycle Race" and "Live and Let Die." These can only be accessed from the "Bonus Features" menu and not the full concert, apparently. The "Behind the Scenes" feature is the same as the North American EPK for "Rock Symphonies" (just shy of 6 minutes).

Sound and picture quality are great (according to the back of the case, it's 5.1 Surround Sound and 2.0 Stereo). The biggest improvement over the PBS David Garrett: Live In Berlin is that the introductions flow smoothly into the songs, rather than cutting from song to song.

We heard this presentation at a November, 2010 broadcast on PBS. I was able to buy the DVD a few weeks later and also his earlier one(2009)where he speaks German. Both are fantastic!

My wife is thrilled with his music. I enjoy it thoroughly myself. For the last few weeks we have watched one or the other DVD almost every night.

My wife plays the violin for a local orchestra and she is thrilled with his music. She particularly enjoys his playing two or more chords at once.
Although I am not a musician, I enjoy it thoroughly myself. He is amazing and one of his kind. He also has a pleasant and friendly personality.

I just enjoy it all. I wish that he had more DVDs available. Yes, addictive is the word. Music is said to be a hint of heaven. This one certainly is.

His last piece, Hey Jude, is out of this world. Pure enjoyment! This DVD is highly recommended.

In the early 1970's I went to a concert in Cleveland Ohio and saw the Jefferson Airplane band. I had a near front row seat very close to the band's excellent violin player Papa John Creach. I was so impressed with his violin play that I spent most of the concert with my eyes glued on him, and not Paul Kantner and Grace Slick who are great artists themselves. I always loved violin play and Papa John was amazing. Recently, I watched David Garrett on Public Television and I saw how great a violinist he is, and he plays classical and rock music. So, I bought his DVD Rock Symphonies, and I am more impressed with his violin play each time I watch the DVD. The fact that he is the world's fastest violin player, along with his exceptional violin skills and ability, make the songs that he plays most enjoyable to listen too. It's not very common to have a great violinist play rock music. For me, it does not matter that David does not write most of his music. I am just thrilled to hear his violin play which adds a precise, refreshing, pure classical music quality to the rock music he plays. The violin is a great instrument to hear play, especially when alot of the music is rock.

While this is the full version of the concert performed in Germany (not the condensed English version available thru PBS), I would only recommend this to lovers of Garrett's music. Sound quality is OK, definitely not Blu Ray and Garrett only speaks in Deutsche. As a limited speaker of German I could somewhat interpret, however my 9 year nephew was a little confused after opening his holiday presents. He loves Garrett's violin playing which was a plus.

There are a few reasons why I suspect an illegal Chinese bootleg copy. While some of the song titles appear in English at the bottom of the screen, the only two choices for language subtitle selection through your DVD player is Chinese 1 and Chinese 2. There is no internal paperwork and the dirty cardboard flecks between the front cover picture and plastic are like nothing I have seen before. This leads me to believe the likelihood of an illegal bootleg copy.

This was sold by Amazing-Concert-DVDs Storefront and while they get a strong 5 of 5 rating, I was not that impressed.
I would ask Amazon to seriously investigate whether this is a Chinese bootleg copy being sold, as American standards do not
need to drop to this low in order to obtain possible illegal goods for a low price.
