DESCRIPTION

David Garrett is a ridiculously handsome violinist who has been active since childhood but only released his first classical crossover album in 2007. They all include classical pieces, pop/rock songs and his own compositions. Although he is trying to bring the violin to a younger audience, he never goes as far as Vanessa-Mae as he keeps his arrangements clean without the drum machine and techno synthesizers. Rather, he takes on some unusual songs, such as 'Nothing Else Matters' by Metallica and Michael Jackson's 'Smooth Criminal'. Listeners that like their classical pieces need not fear as Garrett is enthusiastic about 'Canon', 'Flight of the Bumblebee' and 'Summer' as much as any other violinist. Garrett has also collaborated with other classical crossover artists such as Jonathan Ansell and Will Martin. Fans of Vanessa-Mae's more classical works will enjoy David Garrett, but Bond fans may feel that his arrangements are too straight-forward.

David is an amazing man. An amazing virtuoso violinist with the talent and courage to push the boundaries of classical music. His crossover concerts are a joy and his classical concerts are spellbinding. He is unique! His passion for all music and his ability to connect with his audiences are wonderful. I love and respect him and he amazes me all the time. Fan from England.

I can only say, My day wouldn't be a proper day without listening to David music, He just turn it into a perfect smooth day..

Wish David Garrett All glorified success in the world, He truly deserve it as He works so hard for it..

The wonderfully beautiful Music He makes, His compassion, His hard work, His ambition and inspirations on others would deserve no less than Him being the Best ever musician of nowadays!! I actually even named David once ''The Beethhoven Of The 21 Century!!'' Oh Well, At least this is the way how I see Him :D :D

May He always touches the highest sky with His success..
