David is delighted to announce the forthcoming release of his latest album. Inspired by the legendary violinists whose dazzling showpieces and heart-melting melodies David fell in love with as a child. Dvořák, Gluck, Kreisler, Mendelssohn and Schumann, among many others, is presented in new arrangements for violin, guitar and orchestra (by Franck van der Heijden and David Garrett). David is accompanied by his guitarist Franck van der Heijden – who also conducts the players of Orchestra The Prezent – as well as being joined in duet arrangements by his former teacher Itzhak Perlman, star tenor Andrea Bocelli, flautist Cocomi and trumpeter Till Brönner.
David's personal choice of music evokes the golden era of violin virtuosi, when performers such as Zino Francescatti, Arthur Grumiaux, Jascha Heifetz, Fritz Kreisler and Yehudi Menuhin delighted audiences with popular encores and other minatures. As a young musician, he looked up to these and other players from the past, aspired to emulate their artistry and immersed himself in their historic recordings.
Iconic includes more than twenty tracks and is set for release in all formats on 4 November 2022
