With "David Garrett Live - In Concert & In Private" the 28-year-old violin virtuoso David Garrett releases his first live DVD. In addition to rock classics, great classical melodies and world-famous film scores, the DVD also features eight previously unreleased songs by the star violinist, such as "Smile"; "A Whole New World" or "Volare". In addition to the elaborate recording of the concert, the 50-minute bonus material provides intimate insights into his everyday life on tour and also takes the viewer to his adopted home of New York. Here, for the first time, the winner of the coveted Echo Klassik music award gives a very private interview, describing the highs and lows of his musical career and the challenges of his virtuoso violin playing.
"A revenant of the virtuosos of the 18th and 19th centuries" is what the Süddeutsche Zeitung calls him, the BILD describes his last tour as "goosebumps concerts". Here David Garrett thrilled more than 50,000 enthusiastic fans when he performed with band and orchestra in the largest and most famous halls in Germany. "Bach and AC/DC on the violin - David Garrett manages the impossible" was the headline of the Abendzeitung about his concert in Munich.
