Notes & Reviews:

2009 album from the British violinist. Part maverick, part genius, total virtuoso, David Garrett, 25, has been surprising people since before he was four years old. It was then that his father gave him a violin and, without any lessons, the toddler picked it up and began playing. Fast forward just four years and David was already one of the foremost violinists in the world working with the most celebrated teachers and performing solos with legendary orchestras and conductors. 15 tracks including 'Smooth Criminal', 'Who Wants To Live Forever', 'Hungarian Dance #5' and more. Universal.

Notes & Reviews:

Personnel: David Garrett (violin); Giorgio Serci (guitar); Ray Vega (trumpet); John Haywood (piano, harpsichord); James Genus (double bass).

Recording information: Electric Lady Studios, NY; Livingston Studios; Studio 1, Bulgarian National Radio.

Released in 2008, Encore is the third studio album from German-American violinist David Garrett. Its 15 tracks includes classical reworkings of contemporary pop songs (Michael Jackson's "Smooth Criminal," AC/DC's "Thunderstruck"), movie themes (Pirates of the Caribbean, Zorba the Greek), and traditional classical pieces (Bach's "Air," Debussy's "Clair de Lune"), plus one original composition, "Chelsea Girl." ~ Jon O'Brien
