David Garrett plots U.S. outing behind "Music"
German violinist/composer David Garrett will return to North America early next year for a round of theater shows behind his latest release, "Music."
The former child prodigy will begin the domestic journey with a Jan. 10 performance in St. Louis, MO, and continue through another nine stops through the end of that month. Garrett will tackle a couple Italian shows in February and begin again in the U.S. with a March 12 show in Minneapolis, MN. That leg ventures through 11 markets, finishing up March 30 in Coral Springs, FL, and will be followed by a May trek through Germany.
Garrett is touring in support of his summertime release, "Music," which surfaced July 30 via Verve Records. The 15-track effort mixes classics like Beethoven's "Scherzo" and Clementi's "Sonatina" with reworked pop hits, such as Coldplay's "Viva La Vida" and Justin Timberlake's "Cry Me A River."
"I try to see classical music in a new perspective," Garrett explained in a press release. "On the other hand I want to integrate elements of classical music into pop, yet leave its original energy intact."
