David Garrett CD Review

First of all I just have to say is "Wow"! Ok he's hot, I got that out of the way. Now on to business. This is the amazingly talented David Garrett and I am so lucky to have the chance to review his cd. He plays the violin and I really love the violin. The man can play! Here is some info about him:
"David Garrett is already a huge star in Europe, as well as the Far East . He plays nightly to thousands of adoring fans, particularly in Germany where he has already completed a sold-out arena tour, conquered the charts and garnered two gold discs for both of his records released there. On the famous Last Night of Proms in the UK , he played to a crowd of 40,000 people, and also appeared at the legendary Royal Albert Hall in an impressive six concerts in seven days. His solo album released in the UK became a Top 20 chart fixture. Now, he's set to conquer a whole new terrain with his first American release, simply entitled, David Garrett.
His international career is multi-faceted. With arresting good looks and charisma, David landed a deal as a global brand ambassador for Banana Republic in 2009, and has additional endorsements overseas with brands including Audi and Montblanc. Dubbed, "the fastest violinist in the world," by German paper Kolner Stadt-Anzeigere, the incredible violinist will be in the 2010 Guinness Book of World Records, as the fastest-ever performer of the Flight of the Bumblebee, clocking in at a blistering 66 seconds."

His cd has several familiar songs that he makes sound so unique and beautiful. Songs like Michael Jackson's Smooth Criminal, Metallica's Nothing Else Matters, and also includes the classics like Air by Johann Sebastian Bach. I love classical music and I really enjoy his take on old favorites. If you would like more info on David Garrett , to listen to his songs, or to purchase his cd please visit

  1. I heard his music on NPR. WOW is right!

    If you like how David Garret mixes classical and contemporary you might also like the compilations of Vitamin Records. They do classical and jazz versions of contemporary artists. I accidently found them when I bought what I thought was an album by P.O.D. which turned out to be a classical quartet album inspired by P.O.D. (so, I kept it and got something else for the neighbor teen I had bought it for...and we had a good laugh about it...but turned out to love the CD.)
