When David Garrett wanted a title for his new album, he came straight to the point and called it Music. A former child prodigy of the classical world who signed to Deutsche Grammophon when he was only 13, he now provokes Garrett-mania among hordes of international fans with his spectacular fusions of rock and pop with symphonic or baroque traditions. To him, it's all music and all equally valid.
But he knew that there was a different life beyond the hothouse bubble of classical music, and he took the gamble to leave Europe and head for the teeming melting pot of New York. He kept up his classical studies at the Juilliard School, but the city offered him all kinds of musical and personal opportunities. The new, open-to-everything David Garrett was born.
The pieces he has created for Music offer plenty of clues about the scope of his ambitions. The disc pulls together an intoxicating mix of classic rock, classic pop and classic classical, all blended together within the violinist's ever-expanding universe.
The University Choir and Choral Union are joined by the Southeast Missouri Symphony Orchestra to perform Joseph Haydn’s great Harmonie Mass. Also, the talented winners of the Concerto and Aria and Rising Star Competitions perform.
