David Garrett  - Rock Symphonies album FLAC

His debut album for Decca, David Garrett, debuted at No. 1 on the Classical Crossover chart, and maintained its presence there for 31 solid weeks. In addition, David has been featured on Oprah, Fox & Friends, E! News, the Today Show, CBS Saturday Morning, CNN, and Good Morning America as well as NPR’s All Things Considered. David’s first music special for PBS, Live in Berlin, was an enormous hit as well, and was broadcast during March, June, August, September, and December pledge drives. Rock Symphonies brings together two of this German-born violinist’s two great loves: classical music and the rock music of his generation. For many years, I’ve wanted to bring classical music to a younger audience, confides David, who was soloing with the greatest orchestras in the world by the time he was ten years old.

I used to think the violin was a somewhat annoying sounding instrument, but l have grown to love it. Yeah, I know that if David Garrett wasn’t so smoking hot, I might not have ever listened to his music. Rock Symphonies – David Garrett : album. I play the violin, and honestly, the classical songs bore me to death when playing them. David Garrett inspired me and now I play boring classical music when required, but also enjoy the violin and look forward to practicing when I’m creating a piece that’s part rock and part classical or playing one I have bought or borrowed.

After a self-titled release that flirted with pop crossover, violinist David Garrett dives deep into that world with his 2010 effort, an album that rocks like its 1766. Most arrangements are simple as Garrett takes the melodies from Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit" and Led Zeppelin’s Kashmir and plays them furiously in front of an equally aggressive orchestra that’s augmented by electric guitars and a standard rock kit drummer.

Redirected from Rock Symphonies (David Garrett album)). David Christian Bongartz (born 4 September 1980), better known by his stage name David Garrett, is a German pop and crossover violinist and recording artist. When Garrett was four years old his father bought a violin for his older brother. The young Garrett took an interest and soon learned to play. A year later, he took part in a competition and won first prize.

In 2010, David let his fondness for rock and crossover get the better of him when he recorded a whole album of rock cover versions. Artists given the Garrett treatment included Guns n' Roses, Aerosmith and Metallica. See the full gallery: David Garrett - 15 facts you never knew.
