David Garrett

I am sure many of you have heard of this very talented violinist.  I learn about him through some of my FB friends but never really took notice of him until a dear friend sent me a DVD of Queen Elizabeth’s Diamond Jubilee where he performed with Abigail Washburn.

But as much as I loved the performance and the entire programme (I watched the DVD at least 3 times!), I didn’t get any of his cds or dvds simply because I much prefer listening to songs that are being sung, not just instrumental pieces.

Now, with a new blog set up by another dear friend, Clara, that basically seeks to introduce artists that are less well-known in her country, I am treated to some very captivating performances by David Garrett.  I especially enjoyed Viva La Vida and Beethoven Sinfonia Nº9

The blog link is http://musicnoteblog.wordpress.com/ .  Check it out and who knows?  You might find that he’s your type of musician 😉

Back to watching the Singapore F1 Grand Prix for me now…Michael Schumacher has just crashed out of the race along with a Redbull driver 😦
