A violin prodigy who won competitions at age 5, had a classical record deal at 14, graduated Julliard and studied under Itzhak Perlman, David Garrett is now wowing audiences around the world with his masterful technique and cross-over appeal. Despite being dubbed "the fastest violinist in the world," Garrett provides moments of serene and haunting beauty, when his violin positively weeps. A huge star in Europe and the Far East, where he has played sold-out arenas and an impressive six concerts in seven days at legendary Royal Albert Hall, Garrett has also garnered two gold discs. Musically adventurous, his repertoire now ranges from Bach and Beethoven to Mozart and Metallica, with many of his own creations in the mix. His intense charisma and arresting good looks have turned him into a global brand ambassador for companies from Banana Republic to Audi and Montblanc.
