DAVID GARRETT announces first ever date for his spectacular crossover program in Israel for November 2017
A virtuoso and a maverick, DAVID GARRETT shines with a unique career asboth a classical and crossover performer. His relaxed brilliance andeclectic style has breathed new life into the classical music market, drawing in an exceptionally broad fan base ranging from thes ophisticated black-tie concert hall audience to the head-banging, hip-swaying, stadium rock loving teenagers.

So far DAVID GARRETT has been mesmerizing his Israeli fans with his performances of classical music together with The Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. Before his next classical concerts in spring 2018, his fans will have the first chance toexperience his thrilling crossover program live in Tel Aviv this year already!

With his impeccable musical instinct, DAVID GARRETT uncovers the underlying connections between classical compositions and rockanthems. “Beethoven, Chopin, Liszt and Paganini were the rock musicians of their day and they went out of their way to delight themasses" he says. "Classical music, like Beethoven, has a strong, powerful sense of rhythm just like rock music and AC/DC, for example. A passage in Mozart's "Turkish March" has nearly the sameharmonic progression as Michael Jackson's "Smooth Criminal". He continues: “Classical music has always been sexy but people have forgotten about it. So I thought I'd do core rock and classical crossover music to remind people just how powerful both these genres are".

His current crossover tour, “EXPLOSIVE - LIVE”, started in November 2016 and is set to beat even his previous, superbly successful programs - with no end in sight. Only three weeks into the tourclose to 200,000 tickets had been sold, followed by an additional 100,000 for his concerts this spring. "This tour is like nothing I’ve ever done before!" David explains. His intoxicating renditions of rock hits such as "Purple Rain" or "They Don't Care About Us" and world-famous pop hits like "Viva la vida" as well as his own acclaimed compositions like "Furious" and "Explosive" provide for positively ecstatic crowds frequently rising to their feet, clapping wildly and spontaneously dancing.

A Paganini among pop stars and a Jimi Hendrix among violinists, DAVID GARRETT is the "Devil's Violinist" of our age, an international superstar who blurs the lines between Mozart and Metallica. Praisedfor pioneering the modern crossover trend as well as his exceptionally virtuous playing, David is equally at home at performing the most intricate classical compositions with the world's leading conductor's and orchestras as well as the most crowd pleasing stadium rock hits.

גארט הוא וירטואוז מבריק, עם כריזמה של רוק סטאר המפיח חיים חדשים לתוך המוסיקה הקלאסית כאמן המשלב פופ ורוק, ונחשב לטוב ביותר בתחום האינסטרומנטאלי של ימינו. לטענתו, יש קשר הדוק בין המנוני רוק ומוסיקה קלאסית... לדבריו, "המעבר ביצירה "מארש טורקי" של מוצרט יש אותו קצב והרמוניה כמו ב-"smooth criminal" של מייקל ג'קסון".
