Format: 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.

I received my 'Music' C.D. this morning. It is fantastic and have not stopped playing it. Every track has a different meaning. This young man lives and breathes his music. He makes the violin talk. Amazing and fantastic.

With endlessly exhilarating beautiful "Music", Garrett continues to set new benchmarks for musicality, virtuosity and versatility.

1. Viva La Vida
A sunny, uplifting track. The violin indulges listeners with beautiful layering of solo violin parts, and the confluence erupts into string orchestra; male Rock backup vocals enter to add excitement, and the motivational music concludes with a beautiful coda on high strings.

2. Cry Me A River
A gypsy-flavoured virtuoso rendition of the famous break-up song. The violin executes sweet revenge with wistful glissando, sensuous double-stop slides and passive-aggressive pizzicato.

3. Beethoven - Scherzo
A high-drama Rock version of Scherzo from Beethoven's ninth symphony. With an opening orchestra blast, the charismatic violin leads the Scherzo theme with masculine martelé while sustaining a strangely exciting bass drone as the string-heavy orchestra bulldozes ahead in grand splendour.

4. Human Nature
An easy, breezy cover version of Michael Jackson's pop hit with good-natured humour, played mostly with lighthearted pizzicato to connect with the imaginative, playful child within.

5. Tico Tico
A rhythmical fusion of European classical and Brazilian party music featuring two-handed pizzicato strings following Piazzolla-style tango phrasing (on the violin; Brazilians enjoy tango music too).

6. Chopin - Nocturne
A devastatingly beautiful melody. The violin is in a delicate poetic mood, conveying a gripping sense of longing and lush melancholic sentiments through long-breathed Bellini bel canto line with trills and soaring intensity.

Another David Garrett joy to listen to! He seems to get better and better. I prefer his interpretation of rock music rather than film scores, but this is a classy album.

He is a real virtuoso of the violin and the cd contains a wonderful collection of (rather modern) pieces of music. I just can't stop listening to it!
