A virtuoso and a maverick, DAVID GARRETT shines with a unique career as both a classical and crossover performer. His relaxed brilliance and eclectic style has breathed new life into the classical music market, drawing in an exceptionally broad fan base ranging from the sophisticated black-tie concert hall audience to the head-banging, hip-swaying, stadium rock loving teenagers.

So far DAVID GARRETT has been mesmerizing his Israeli fans with his performances of classical music together with The Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. Before his next classical concerts in spring 2018, his fans will have the first chance to experience his thrilling crossover program live in Tel Aviv this year already!

With his impeccable musical instinct, DAVID GARRETT uncovers the underlying connections between classical compositions and rock anthems. “Beethoven, Chopin, Liszt and Paganini were the rock musicians of their day and they went out of their way to delight the masses,” he says. “Classical music, like Beethoven, has a strong, powerful sense of rhythm just like rock music and AC/DC, for example. A passage in Mozart’s ‘Turkish March’ has nearly the same harmonic progression as Michael Jackson’s ‘Smooth Criminal.’”
He continues: “Classical music has always been sexy but people have forgotten about it. So I thought I’d do core rock and classical crossover music to remind people just how powerful both these genres are.”
Due to the sensational demand from DAVID GARRETT’s Israeli fans Germany’s hottest music export is going to perform his wildly celebrated crossover program “EXPLOSIVE – LIVE” in Tel Aviv on November 6th 2017. Tickets are on sale from June 6th via www.leaan.co.il as well as in all ticket sales outlets.

His current crossover tour, “EXPLOSIVE – LIVE”, started in November 2016 and is set to beat even his previous, superbly successful programs – with no end in sight. Only three weeks into the tour close to 200.000 tickets had been sold, followed by an additional 100.000 for his concerts this spring. “This tour is like nothing I’ve ever done before!” David explains. His intoxicating renditions of rock hits such as “Purple Rain” or “They Don’t Care About Us” and world-famous pop hits like “Viva la vida” as well as his own acclaimed compositions like “Furious” and “Explosive” provide for positively ecstatic crowds frequently rising to their feet, clapping wildly and spontaneously dancing.
A Paganini among pop stars and a Jimi Hendrix among violinists, DAVID GARRETT is the “Devil’s Violinist” of our age, an international superstar who blurs the lines between Mozart and Metallica. Praised for pioneering the modern crossover trend as well as his exceptionally virtuous playing, David is equally at home at performing the most intricate classical compositions with the world’s leading conductor’s and orchestras as well as the most crowd pleasing stadium rock hits. Admired by millions of fans around the world, DAVID GARRETT has sold millions of tickets so far and earned 23 gold and 16 platinum awards in places as diverse as Hong Kong, Germany, Mexico, Taiwan, Brazil, Singapore, and many others. For his current album for Decca, “Explosive”, he has been awarded with Gold in Germany and Austria within just a few short weeks. DAVID GARRETT combines rock star charisma with the kind of virtuosity innate only to the best instrumentalists of our time.
Don’t miss out on a thrilling evening with DAVID GARRETT & HIS BAND! With “EXPLOSIVE – LIVE” you are in for a unique crossover program with hard-hitting rock tunes as well as stirring ballads and, of course, a little bit of exquisite classical music.
