5.0 out of 5 stars KALEIDOSKOPIC, 21 Nov 2012
This review is from: Music (Audio CD)
I've appreciated the open-minded approach that David has towards the crossover side of his career, here it does the trick again with pop-rock-folk-classical revisited: so you can go from a sort of Bond mixed with Zeppelin all the way through Celtic kind of fiddling (for the 1st time), ending up with Beethoven.
He manages to do it with the right taste, using different arrangments & personal mash-ups: I do hope that for the future he'll manage to get the rights to play for inst. the cinematic scores he likes & more, because I'm always curious to hear his interpretation (& naturally I've enjoyed also his own compositions, let's hope to have some more for the future then, because this time he's done just covers).

I think with this cd, where there's a bit for everyone's tastes, he'll get even more fans. I've liked that, as with his previous cds (apart Rock Symphonies), he's written down in the booklet the genesis of every track on the album, both in English & German (as he's used to explain in lenght on interviews); it's an useful overview to those not familiar with the songs & makes it a more personal work indeed.
Last but not least, he'll make his debut next year as the virtuoso Paganini, in a film dedicated to his legend: he's also played the musical parts so, even if David isn't an actor it'll be interesting to watch it regardless.
