A musician whose reputation precedes him. Brilliant, fearless, genre-defying, with a track record of multi-platinum and gold albums. One of the few artists to have won a string of ECHO awards in both classical and pop categories. Now star violinist David Garrett is back with a new recording, IconicThis limited collectors’ edition is one of just 50 signed and numbered test pressings presented in a gatefold sleeve. Exclusively redesigned for this edition, the album cover is included as an insert. David Garrett here pays tribute to the great violinists of the golden age – 20th-century legends such as Heifetz, Kreisler and Menuhin. He presents a personal selection of gems of the repertoire – atmospheric miniatures and virtuoso showpieces by Bach, Gluck, Mendelssohn, Schumann, Dvořák and Kreisler, among many more. Specially arranged for violin, guitar and orchestra, these pieces take on a new, unique and intimate feel. Garrett is accompanied by his guitarist Franck van der Heijden, who also directs OrchestraThe Prezent. “I’ve recorded many virtuoso albums myself,” says the violinist. “This time it was particularly important to me to refocus on the essentials, on what really speaks to the heart.” Garrett duets with his former teacher ItzhakPerlman, star tenor Andrea Bocelli, flautist Cocomi and trumpeter Till BrönnerIconic is released by Deutsche Grammophon on 4 November 2022.
