David Garrett Rock Symphonies

Above: David Garrett -- the best-selling new classical artist of 2009 -- brings listeners along on a roller coaster ride of genres colliding on his sophomore album, "Rock Symphonies." "Rock Symphonies" displays Garrett's love of both classical and rock, marrying the two genres with a fierce intensity. Featuring new interpretations of his favorite rock anthems by U2, Nirvana, Metallica and Aerosmith to name a few, David's virtuosic violin playing shines through with precision and power, backed by his band and The City Of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. With his new Public Television concert special slated for an August broadcast, David Garrett is poised to be the breakout star of the summer. "Rock Symphonies" will be released on Decca July 20, 2010.
