After a successful fall tour and a whirlwind press campaign featuring major media hits on The Today Show, E! News, CNN, Fox & Friends, NPR and 2 performances on CBS Early Show’s Second Cup Café, violin virtuoso David Garrett is back in the U.S. in support of his smash PBS special, “Live In Berlin” and his self-titled debut. For the 2nd leg of his tour, David will crisscross the U.S. hitting major cities including Dallas, Boston, Portland, LA, Chicago and Nashville to name a few. (For a complete list of tour dates below). Dubbed by People Magazine as a “classical hottie,” David Garrett continues to excite music lovers of all ages.
At age eight, he was being booked to play as a soloist in front of some of the world’s greatest orchestras, including the London Philharmonic, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and the Russian National Orchestra. At thirteen, he was signed to the most famous and prestigious classical music label, Deutsche Grammophon.
Aching to escape the confines of classical music, without telling his parents, he fled Germany for New York. The classical violin was put aside as he discovered rock music, clubs and girls.
While in New York, he auditioned at the world famous Juilliard music school, was accepted, and to his surprise, taken on by the legendary violinist, Itzhak Perlman.
Moonlit as a busboy and model, landing him in the pages of Vogue and the Fashion Week catwalks for Armani.
Dubbed, “the fastest violinist in the world,” David 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.
