    Can I just say what a comfort to uncover a person that truly
    understands what they are discussing over the internet.
    You definitely realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important.
    More people have to look at this and understand this side of the story.

    I can’t believe you are not more popular given that you certainly possess the gift.

    Dear David,
    I have been an enthusiastic music lover all my life (I am aged 50) and you are one of my all-time favourite musicians! I love your repertoire very much (must confess, though, I have not listened to all of it yet, but am actually collecting all your recordings…. ;)) As I listen to all kinds and styles of music internationally be it classical, ethnical, traditional, jazz, rock, progressive and pop… and my favourite music has actually always been film sound tracks…. I also do really appreciate your cross-over programme and repertoire very, very much! The pieces and songs you choose and arrange and perform are brilliant – for me, you have got THAT GOLDEN EAR indeed, BRAVO!!! Maybe you are asked for all kinds of musical wishes and requests by your fans… and I would love to so too… sorry, but you are such a grand maestro and virtuoso, one cannot help imagining you playing anything you just like, fancy or dream of…;) Regarding classical music, I have just had a chance to listen to a marvellous masterpiece of music, you will most likely know it: Antonin Dvorak, Romance in F minor Op. 11 – for Violin and piano or Violin/Orchestra. Looking through your repertoire, I am not sure, if you have recorded it. But every time I listen to this marvellous masterpiece, I imagine you playing it would just sound so heavenly…! Regarding rock music, I do have favourites in progressive rock/metal such as musical projects by Joe Satriani, Dream Theater, Yngwie Malmsteen, Steve Vai, the Bozzio/Levin/Stevens projects e.g. “Situation Dangerous” or “Liquid Tension Experiment”… Most of these guys have had a classical education too, and it also is incredibly fascinating and impressing how they arrange and improvise with the progressive rock/metal music on a truly impeccable high level of musical talent too… you probably know them all already… in my wildest dreams I imagine you making projects with them too… would be terrific! I hope I am not bothering you with my writing too much…;) I am already looking forward to your concert in Zurich in December very much! I wish you real success in all what you do in your life and most of all, I wish you lots of love and health! Luv, Esther from Switzerland

Carry on your fantastic work and take care of yourself! I am really looking forward to attending your concert in Zurich in December with my friends ;)….

    Dear Mr. Garrett,
    First of all, I’m very glad I’ll get to hear your music live tomorrow, I consider it an honor.
    Second, you are a very virtuous musician! I truly admire you. From one violinist to another, it takes courage to do what you’re doing; practicing each day harder, fighting with amazingly difficult master pieces, getting to know many countries thanks to your passion, sharing with thousands of people the beautiful person you are.
    I wanted you to know I started my way into music (through the violin) thanks to you. I sincerely hope we get to know each other someday, here in Monterrey or in Germany, so you could hear me and my violin. Thanks to everything you have taught me, indirectly, I’m a better musician. You have a unique charm, dont let anyone take ir away from you.
    Tomorrow, I’ll send you a letter, I truly hope it gets to your hands:)
    Good luck tomorrow Mr. Garrett!
    VIELEN DANKE!
    Best regards,
    Emilia Santos

    When you mentioned that “Groovy Kind of Love” came from Clementi. It sparked a mad treasure hunt on my part. I grabbed my Clementi music books, first trying the first movements. Then I realized it was a RONDO and soon discovered it!! I grabbed my husband out of his office and dragged him into the parlor to hear it. He too, loves classical music, but was not as impressed with my treasure trove. How about Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue? I cannot play it on the piano as my hands are not big enough. I still think they should have pianos for women, so that we can more easily span those octaves+! LOVE YOUR MUSIC! ALL OF IT! Give us another treasure hunt! That was so much fun!

    Ich hätte da noch einen Komponisten, der selten aufscheint, aber zu seiner Zeit einer der am häufigsten gespielten Komponisten war:

    Ignaz Joseph Pleyel – Schüler Haydn´s, Komponist, Verleger, Instrumentebauer und Begründer der Salle Pleyel

    Er ging vom kleinen Niederösterreichischen Ruppersthal, über Esterhaza, Strassbourg nach Paris. Seine Musik wurde gespielt von New York bis St.Petersburg. Er gab Konzert mit Haydn in London und weil er so beliebt war zu seiner Zeit, wurden ihm mehrere tausend Werk angedichtet.

    Besonders bekannt wurde er für seine Kammermusik.

    Please come to Cleveland ,Ohio. We have a music hall, Severance Hall, that has great acoustics! When I was in elementary school, all the elementary schools in the city took their students each year to classical performances there.
    That is where many of us first learned to LOVE classical music. I had many a date in the upper balconies of the hall, where the sound is superb!!

    Lieber David-herzlichen Dank für die persönliche signierte Autogrammkarte zu deiner neuen CD-“Explosiv”.

Danke für deine Musik!! unbeschreiblich schön und ein purer Genuss -DANKE:)

    My profession is closely connected with music and children. I teach at a music school, but also teach in a regular school. It is very difficult to tell Teens about classical music. The younger generation is not easy to invite to the concert hall or the Philharmonic. And that’s talking about a particular composer, a particular piece of music I sometimes include video David. Children with great interest perceive music in your performance. They say you don’t look like a classical musician. Begin to ask – Who is this? What’s his name? David you give some people the opportunity to touch this wonderful world of classical music. And that’s fine! Thank you very much for this.

    Good Lord, is there anything you can’t play? And wouldn’t it be simpler just to say ‘he is perfection’ and leave it at that? What more could anyone say? I have watched many of your symphonies on videos and never yet seen you glance at a piece of music. You are no lest that a gift to the world. And by the way — rock on! I saw one of your last concert in USA in Florida and we all screamed like crazed teenagers! I’m pretty sure you heard me. I was 6th row back, 8th seat in stage left, and I am still raspy from screaming. BRAVO!

    Thursday night I was looking to relax and take my head elsewhere when I stumbled upon The Devil’s Violinist. I watched with my whole being. I have never heard such beauty in my whole life, I cried on Lo Ti Penso Amore. I needed to know that beauty was still out there. I needed to know that my taste for…not typical flavors wasn’t a passing fancy. I played the violin but changed to the Cello because, at that time, it was bottom heavy like me so naturally I gravitated towards deeper tones. It also helps that my singing voice is deep and a bit raspy, I digress. This movie touched me in a way I thought was dead. I feel that fire again to play and play with my whole person, I haven’t explored such depths but am inspired because of this movie.
    If i may be forward, the sexuality tension, the journey, the impossible raw emotions that bled through your violin spilled into my aching soul, which I also thought was broken. What I’m trying to get at is, Thank You. Thank you for giving me space to hear, feel, reminisce of what came natural to me in music and in dance. To not be afraid of what others may presume I “should” look or sound like. To always make my own way and follow my complete passion. You are truly a gift sir. Thank You.

    On your next US tour, I hope you play in the Osawa Symphony Hall at Tanglewood. It is considered to be one of the acoustically best there is, and I think you would be phenomenonal there. And it’s only about 1.5 hours from me, so I would be sure to be there!

    Hi David:
    When are you returning to Washington, DC??? I saw you when you performed at Birchmere and George Washington, and actually met you and took a photo of you. Please, please, please come back to the DC Area.

    Hi David………I am really enjoying seeing all your performances on U-Tube! I have been trying to find out if you have performed or recorded one of my favorites……Saint Saens Violin Concerto No.3 Havansaise? Have you ever done this piece……..if so……….where can I find it? My dad had Jascha Heifetz and Fritz Kreisler records from the 40’s and when I was 12 I listened to them all the time over and over. Love the violin and all those beautiful pieces. I would love to hear you play the ones I learned from my dads old records……..Hope to see you when you come to the USA. Will be looking for that certain one I spoke of earlier………Keep playing forever for all of us…….Keeps me alive! Thank you so much………Sonyajoy

    Hallo David, ich bin ein großer Fan von Dir und Deiner Musik. Es ist Wahnsinn, wie du Klassik und Rock verbindest. Von Mozart bis Michael Jackson, einfach alles. Du berührst mich und viele andere mit deinen wunderschönen Interpretationen und hilfst damit durch schwere Stunden. Deine Konzert, egal ob Klassik oder Crossover, sind der Wahnsinn. Ob Lichteffekte und Megashow oder “weniger-ist-mehr” nur mit Klavier. Du bist immer wieder toll und ein Highlight. Ich danke dir, dass du trotz deines Erfolges bodenständig geblieben bist und nicht abhebst. Du gibst dich wie der beste ” Kumpel von neben an”. Mit Dir kann man sich identifizieren. Bitte bleib so wie du bist, denn so lieben dich Deine Fans. Ich wünsche dir Gesundheit und dass noch viele deiner beruflichen Träume in Erfüllung gehen und du mit deiner wunderschönen Musik noch lange Menschen erreichst.
    Liebe Grüße,
    Sophia

    Lieber David, Keiner spielt soooo zauberhaft die Violine wie Du !!! Mit deiner grandiosen energiegeladenen emotionalen Sound – Begeisterung machst du uns alle super super happy !!! Nimmst du vielleicht mal das wundervolle harmonische Violinlied “The Lark ascending” von R.Vaughan Williams in dein Repertoire auf ? Es würde supergut zu Dir passen ! Bitte erhalte unbedingt weiter die erfreulichen kleinen netten Classic-Kammerkonzerte in der Phiharmonie Cologne, der Sound ist 1000 mal besser als in der miesen großen Arena !! Vielen vielen herzlichen Dank Dir , Beste Gesundheit wünscht Dir Herzlichst Silvie…

    H, David !
    You’re a genius and amazing man! You make me appreciate the beauty of classical music. Classical music was not my cup of tea before ( Actually , I was outsider about that) Thanks to you and your music, now I’m hooked on it. Every day I start and finish with Bach, Vivaldi, Paganini and every piece you play. Besides them, the other kinds of music you’re playing are also awesome and impressive. People would be happy if you play “music” ( Jone Miles’, I saw you played it on Jose gala show, it was stunning ) during the concert. I love vocalise, meditation, nocturne, gypsy airs which are played by you. And I remember the love theme of Korean TV drama created by you. It was so beautiful, sad and emotional. How could you understand and describe Korean’s emotion so perfectly. It’s incredible and mysterious. You and your music are alaways breathtaking, thrilling, gorgeous and sublime. My dear, David , it would be honoured to me if i could help you in any way when you visit my country, Korea sometimes in the future. God bless you and stay healthy !

    Ich war gestern auf dem Konzert in Muenchen. War klasse, auch und gerade die Erinnerung an den Sommer mit “We are the champions”. Die Neuinterpretationen der klassischen Stuecke machten ebenso Spass.
    In der Zeitung heute lese ich, wie irgendso ein Musikkritiker das Konzert total runtermacht. So eine Nase.

    David, mach weiter so. Es gibt eine ganze Generation, die mit der Rockmusik der 70er,80er,90er aufgewachsen ist und entsprechend auch klassische Interpretationen gerne hoert. Und auch einen besseren Zugang zu den alten Schinken sucht.

    Was uebrigens interessant war: In der Olympiahalle wurden in der Pause die naechsten Konzerte beworben. Wenn man gesehen hat, was da fuer Geister der Vergangenheit (Udo Juergens, Howard Chippendale, Lionel Richie,…) immer noch herumlaufen, dann ist man froh, wenn ein etwas juengerer Kuenstler mal neue Interpretationen bietet.

    Hallo David,
    deine Musik hat mir schon in manchen schwierigen Situationen geholfen. Lass das nie sein und verzaubere immer mehr Menschen mit diesem Zauber den du in die Musik legst. Ich könnte Platzen vor Glück dass ich eins von deinen Konzerten besuchen darf. Bleib wie du bist und lass dich nicht und scheinbaren Musikhassern hindern diese wundervolle Musik zu machen.

    Hallo David.
    lange konnte ich mich aus gesundheitlichen Gründen nicht melden. Aber ich habe immer an Dich gedacht! Deine Musik
    gibt mir Kraft . Deine klassischen Stücke mag ich besonders gerne denn sie berühren die Seele und gehen einem nicht aus den Ohren und schon gar nicht aus dem Kopf. Obwohl ich zugeben muss das ich auch die Crossover Stücke gerne höre. Aber deine Genialität erkennt man erst wenn man Deine klassischen Stücke anhört.
    Danke für alles und bleib so wie du bist. Außerdem wünsche ich dir viel Glück für deine neuen Projekte.
    Liebe Grüsse Kathi

    Love David for his music and trying to get the younger generation to appreciate the wonders of classical music. As a retired art and music teacher, my primary goals were to institute an interest in the pleasures of good art and fabulous music. Hope you return to St. Louis, Mo. soon, saw you in Jan. would love a command performance and would love to meet you and share some of our mutual feelings concerning the arts. Much love to David.

    Hello, David! i have been listening to your music ever since i found you on Pandora this March. would you consider putting Madagascar 2 – Theme Song into your repertoire? it would sound as epic as your “He is a pirate” !

    Hi David
    Da ich in West Australien lebe, moechte ich gerne wissen ob Sie Plaene haben einmal hierhin zu kommen. Ebenso wollte ich wissen ob Sie Friedrich Smetana zu Ihrem repertoire hinzufuegen, da ist eine Polka im Finale des ersten Aktes. 😉
    Hope we see you downunder one day! Thanks for allowing all the YouTube videos which makes the wait a little easier.

    Hi David! You are an amazing musician with incredible energy. Why do not you play excerpts from operettas? It would be great to hear in your performance, say, something from “Die Fledermaus” by Johann Strauß or Mr. X’s aria from the operetta “The Circus Princess” by Emmerich Kalman. Is it too easy for you or don’t you lake this music?)))

    Hi David,
    It’s me again. If you ever see these comments, I would like to ask if you have thought about adding “Maleguena” by Ernesto Lecuona to your repertoire. It is not a flashy or difficult piece, but I’d love to hear you play it.
    Marion

    David,
    I have been enthralled with your performances since I first saw you on PBS. I love your crossover music, but it is your playing of Classical music that truly speaks to my heart. Your passion is felt through every fiber of my being. Your music lifts my spirits and gives me joy, and if I need calm, I listen to “Thais”.
    I am looking forward to the time when “Der Teufelsgeiger” can be seen in America. David Garrett as Paganini is so exciting (in every sense of the word). As you must know, you are a very handsome man. You look great with blond hair, but after watching the trailer for “Der Teufelsgeiger” I think you should keep your hair dark. But that’s just my opinion.
    It is wonderful that one of your goals is to introduce the young people of today to the richness of Classical music. I have long felt they are missing out on so much, and after all, today’s music couldn’t exist without the genius of the compositions of the great composers of previous centuries. I fell in love with classical when I was about 3 yrs. old and, like you, it wasn’t until I was in my mid teens that I began listening to Rock. Rock is a nice diversion, but if I had to choose one genre to listen to for the rest of my life, it would be classical.
    I wish for you good health and happiness always.
    Marion

    David Garrett es usted una grandiosa persona, lo adoro soy su fan número uno lo amo me encanta que toque el violín creo que es lo mas hermoso que existe en este mundo, la música y gracias a usted seguirá viva por mucho tiempo, aunque no alcance boletos para su concierto en enero dentro del auditorio nacional en la cuidad de México, no me importa porque yo seguiré escuchando su música hasta el día que yo me muera, solo ese día dejara de sonar su música en el exterior pero dentro de mi siempre existirá.
    Con amor y muchísima admiración.

    Hallo David, Viele Gruesse aus dem schoenen Nordwesten von Amerika. Ich bin aus Ansbach in Bayern, lebe aber schon viele Jahre in Amerika. Habe Dich vor ein paar Wochen hier auf dem PBS-Sender gehoert und gesehen und Du bist unvergleichbar. Darauffolgend habe ich Deine DVDs-Live in Baden-Baden, Rock-Symphonies und Music gekauft. Dein Vater hat Recht gehabt, Du hast etwas Spezielles. Solch ein Talent wie Deines lernt man nicht, man ist damit geboren. Ich bin seit vielen, vielen Jahren eine klassische Musikliebhaberin und Deine Arrangements und Variationen sind phenomenal. Ich war zu Konzerten in Carnegie Hall, Philadelphia, Chicago und hier in Seattle, aber Deine Musik ist bezaubernd. Always play the classics. Tschues, Barbara.P.S.:Love your boots.

    Super Excited that you will be performing in Minneapolis, MN in 2014. My friends and I are going to have a wonderful evening. You are such a great and talented artist and, of course, easy on the eyes. :-)

    Considerado Señor Garret, ante todo, quiero agradecerle como terapeuta clinica , mi especialidad, por el aporte que usted humildemente , sumado su magia, porduce en los niños con capacidades diferentes. Su interpretacion va mas alla de la musica en si misma , los niños cierran sus ojos, es una brisa que impulsa sus alas , sus sensibilidad mas profunda. El trabajo con niños especiales , combinado con su interpretaciones ha tenido un efecto en ellos , que supera las expectativas de todos los que juntos trabajamos en ësto. Musica donde la fuerza , delicadeza, improntas que hacen que sus sentidos despierten y sigan a esa musica , a ese tema , como su alma les permita, permitiendonos esa ansiada conexion con el mundo.
    Gracias David Garrett, por permitir que la musica sea de todos y no del tipo de Musica. Gracias ! por ser para los niños el Viento que empuja sus alas….
    Anna Biseaux.

    Das Repertoire ist beeindruckend. Es gibt so viele schöne Werke, die man gern von David hören würde. “Die Moldau” aus dem Zyklus “Mein Vaterland” von Bedřich Smetana gehört für mich auch dazu, genauso wie “I Was Born To Love You”, “It’s A Hard Life” und viele, viele andere Titel von Queen. Aber wenn David jeden Musikwunsch erfüllen wollte, der an ihn herangetragen wird, fände er sicher in den nächsten 1000 Jahren keine einzige Minute Ruhe. Zudem wäre es sehr traurig, wenn er keine Zeit finden würde, sich seinen eigenen Kompositionen zu widmen, denn “Chelsea Girl” und “Winter Lullaby” sind so unbeschreiblich berührend, dass man sehnsüchtig auf weitere Werke von ihm wartet.

    David, mi hijo y yo hemos encontrado un concierto de rock sinfónico no es menos que MARAVILLOSO, aún lloro cuando escucho las canciones de MJ y tu, por supuesto, eres genial en la interpretación de Smooth Criminal.
    El motivo de mi mensaje además de felicitarte es contarte que en Bogotá (Colombia) Hay un Festival de Rock gratuito, el más importante de Latinoamérica. Está a mi alcance gestionar una invitación para este festival, así que estaré en contacto.
    Asistirían unas 75 a 80 mil personas, en ese escenario se han presentado Metálica, Megadeth, Apocalíptica, Kiss, Aerosmith, en otros escenarios Elton John, Paul McArtney, Guns And Roses, Plácido Domingo, Pavarotti. Tu eres la combianción perfecta para este evento. En Bogotá eres bienvenido siempre.

    David und seine Neigung an Musik ist mit meinen Worten nicht zu beschreiben. Das wäre zu wenig.

Your hard work has paid off in more ways than you might imagine. I hope to be able to see you in concert someday. It is getting close to Christmas, and I was thinking that you could make an incredible Christmas CD! Perhaps this might be on your “to do” list? Thank you for inspiring and amazing me and millions of others! Love, Lisa

    I’ve always had a deep love for music, no matter which genre I loved it all. the violin and piano have a special place in my heart because they have a way of capturing emotion and relaying it back to an audience in the most beautiful and inspiring ways. When I stumbled across a concert of yours a few days ago, i recognized Franz Shubert’s Serenade. I wanted to punch you in the face for playing it, but you played it so beautifully as i was about to turn the TV off, and i couldn’t help but stare at the screen entranced until the concert was over… for the first time in years I needed music again! Thank you for making the music magical again, Marina Pearll

    3 years old and fascinated by Mr. Garrett…..your NYC show at Best Buy has truly inspired our son to be YOU. He walks around with a violin most of the day and wants to watch the PBS DVD or listen to Rock Symphonies in the car or while at home. Thanks for taking a moment to share a picture with my son. Thank you to Kimberly and Benjamin for making this happen. Thanks to Rick Blaskey for taking the time to answer my email and it was a pleasure meeting you. We hope there will be a summer tour to have the pleasure to see Mr. Garrett once again. He has moved my son and brings to joy to us to see him so passionate. His Speech teacher has also noticed a difference in his persona. Once again many thanks for coming into our lives. Mom to the Biggest Smallest Fan…..

We are in love my sister-in-law and myself with you, your genius, your heart, your soul, your tenderness, your passion, your face…….you are a remarkable man and look forward to be in your presence whenever you are in the area. We’ll see you in the Connecticut room at the next meet and greet. They wouldn’t let us in as hard as we tried! Yes we’re obsessed but not in a scary crazy way, more in a crazy nutty immature way.

    Lieber David, zu Deiner Rock Symphonies kann man Dich wirklich nur gratulieren und man kann schlecht beurteilen, welches Lied man am Schönsten findet. Davon gibt es zu viele. Insbesonders die klassischen Stücke finde ich echt toll interpretiert und ich bin völlig glücklich darüber, dass Du meinen Lieblingskomponisten Vivaldi ausgerechnet mit meiner Lieblings-Rockband U2 kombiniert hast. Damit hast Du mir ein echtes Geschenk gemacht!

    Je öfters ich jedoch die Rock Symphonies höre, umso mehr beeindruckt mich Deine Version von Mahlers 5th. Ich kannte dieses Adagietto von Mahler vorher nicht, habe mir aber daraufhin die ursprüngliche Orchesterversion angehört. Ist wirklich ein tolles Werk. Aber Deine Interpretation wirkt sehr viel emotionaler auf mich. Deine dramatische Steigerung des Stücks geht total unter die Haut und es bleibt auch dort, da Du das Werk auf das Wesentliche und somit auf das Schönste reduziert hast, in einem wie ich finde, idealen Tempo. Man bekommt das Stück nicht satt! Du solltest es dieses Jahr unbedingt in Dein Live-Programm mit aufnehmen. Tausend Dank für diese Aufnahme!

    Es war das geilste Konzert allerzeiten, mit Tränen in den Augen lief ich aus der Halle raus.. 20.11.2010 in München, werd ich nie vergessen… David spielt so hammer Geige… mit so viel Gefühl, und zwischendurch ist er so sympathisch, in dem er Geschichten aus seinem Leben erzählt =) =) War mit Abstand der beste Abend, den ich je erlebt habe… Ich besuche nächstes Jahr aufjedenfall noch eines seiner Konzerte =)

  106. Posted by wikado    20/11/2010 14:02

    Egal was David spielt er tut es mit einer Leidenschaft und Hingabe wie ich es selten gesehen habe. Die Konzerte sind einfach genial. Wenn ich könnte würde ich ihn mir jeden Tag live anhören und hoffe auch mal eins seiner reinen klassischen Konzert miterleben zu dürfen. Es ist Gänsehaut pur, sehr entspannend einfach nur toll!!!!!!!!!
    DAVID BITTE HÖRE NIE AUF GEIGE ZU SPIELEN!

    Ich habe viele dieser Stücke in meiner Kindheit und auch später gehört-sowohl Schallplatte (gab es damals noch) als auch auf Konzerten in Wien.Die Ausführung Deiner Stücke ist so umwerfend, daß ich verzaubert bin und mit Deiner Hilfe über meines Vaters Tod, der mir die klassische Musik näher gebracht hat, besser hinweg komme wenn ich Deine Musikinterpretation höre und Dich auch sehe.Danke!!!!!Danke für dieses kostbare Geschenk!Uschi

    Sicherlich muss jeder Weltklasse-Geiger ein solch beeindruckendes Repertoire haben. So viel kann er (leider) gar nicht auf CD einspielen. Neben dem traumhaft schönen Tschaikowsky-Violinkonzert sind es besonders 2 Stücke, die mich durch David’s Interpretation begeistert haben: Zum Einen das Andante aus der Sonate No. 2 von J.S. Bach (mein absolutes Lieblingsstück mit Suchtfaktor, leider von David nie eingespielt, hoffentlich irgendwann mal 😉 Ich habe davon aber eine sehr schöne Aufnahme von I. Perlman).
    Zum Anderen die beeindruckende Ciaconne aus der Partita No. 2, ebenfalls von J.S. Bach. Ich weiß nicht, welche Interpretation Bach selbst dafür im Kopf hatte, jedenfalls habe ich mir dieses Stück von mehreren großen Geigern angehört, aber keine ist auch nur annähernd so atenberaubend wie die Interpretation von David, die er schon in jungen Jahren eingespielt hat. Besonders der Mittelteil der Ciaconne mit den zum Teil 4-stimmigen Akkorden ist grandios.
    Ich schließe mich ganz der Meinung von Johannes Brahms an, der in einem Brief an Clara Schumann folgendes über Bach’s Ciaconne schrieb: “Die Chaconne ist mir eines der wunderbarsten, unbegreiflichsten Musikstücke. Auf ein System, für ein kleines Instrument schreibt der Mann eine ganze Welt von tiefsten Gedanken und gewaltigsten Empfindungen. Wollt ich mir vorstellen, ich hätte das Stück machen, empfangen können, ich weiß sicher, die übergroße Aufregung und Erschütterung hätte mich verrückt gemacht. Hat man nun keinen größten Geiger bei sich, so ist es wohl der schönste Genuss, sie sich einfach im Geist tönen zu lassen”.
    Zum Glück haben wir David. Danke David, für diese Einspielung

  109. Posted by Manuela    25/10/2010 23:12

    Keine Frage – was immer er spielt – er spielt mit Herz und Gefühl! Man kann süchtig werden ihm zuzusehen und zu hören!
    Er ist ein Genie und verschönert unser Leben!!!
