David Garrett in the Kurhaus
Together with the "Orchestre National de Belgique" and conductor James Feddeck, the world-famous violinist David Garrett is to play a concert in the Kurhaus Wiesbaden at 8 p.m. on 27th March 2018.
For over 25 years, the violinist David Garrett has been pursuing a unique musical path of his own and has built up an impressive international career in the process. Whether Brahms or crossover – his passion is to open up the world of classical music to a new audience. And he seems to be succeeding in bringing about this "classic revolution". Because even if David Garrett performs simply standing on the stage as opposed to storming the auditorium suspended in a gondola, the audience listen to him and his enchanting violin tones with fervour.
A milestone in violin literature. Even the feared music critic Eduard Hanslick, who ranted at the premiere that this had nothing to do with playing the violin but was just "ruffling, plucking, striking it", was unable to halt the triumph of Tchaikovsky's violin concerto. The immense technical requirements make it a real test for any virtuoso; but its effect is drawn from its poetic expressiveness and character.
