Released in 2007, Virtuoso, the second album from violin prodigy David Garrett, consists of tracks borrowed from his debut album, Free, alongside three previously unreleased compositions, Pachelbel's Canon in D major, Rimsky-Korsakov's Flight of the Bumble Bee, and "You Raise Me Up." Alongside reworkings of classic movie themes from West Side Story and Deliverance, there are traditional classical pieces from Bizet and Paganini, a surprising rendition of Metallica's "Nothing Else Matters," and three original compositions, "Serenade," "Toccata," and "Eliza's Song." ~ Jon O'Brien
