David Garrett

Legacy

He moves between two musical worlds … and it seems as if two hearts beating in his chest: David Garrett in the world of classical music celebrated his international breakthrough. But that was not enough. He has finally re-invented, with its crossover albums conquered the rest of the world and sparked enthusiasm everywhere. After his spectacular success in the pop-rock world around David Garrett now with the new album “Legacy” to his roots, to mark the foundation of his skills and also the beginning of his extraordinary journey. “It’s not what life is about, it is easy to make, but to do something right,” said David Garrett’s drive, the diversity of its projects more complex and challenging, rather than simply to repeat. His great role models Nicolo Paganini, Fritz Kreisler, Isaac Stern, and obliged, David Garrett for “Legacy” with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Ion Marin and the Concerto for Violin and Orchestra in D major, Op. 61 by Ludwig van Beethoven (1770 – 1827) was added. David Garrett is an artist who tried quite in the tradition of the violin virtuoso, combining old with new, without forgetting their roots. So he has decided to arrange next to Beethoven’s Violin Concerto, works by Fritz Kreisler (1875-1962) and to re-record. Fritz Kreisler has suffered any almost forgotten Violin Concerto in the concert halls of the 20th Century, brought back and given wonderful cadences. It is natural to the combination of Beethoven and Kreisler. Fritz Kreisler was a violinist, composer and arranger. He scooped out a generous hand and provided over again with new works, such as of Pugnani, Corelli or Tartini. He later admitted that the works of him came in the style of the composer. David Garrett on his new album ‘Legacy’ six works by Fritz Kreisler for violin and orchestra, and the 18th Variation from Rachmaninoff’s Paganini Variations arranged for piano and orchestra again. In the latter showed David’s research shows that the arrangement for violin and orchestra is also by Fritz Kreisler. With the recording of the Violin Concerto by Beethoven, David Garrett meets a lifelong dream.
