“Violin virtuoso really rocks!”
Picking up with mesmerizing performances not seen in Rock Symphonies, David Garrett, Rock Symphonies II is an all-new 40 minute concert special, and 60 minute pledge event with David Garrett and Laura Savini. Shot before a sold out audience of 18,000 at Berlin’s open-air Wuhlheide Theater. In this stunning performance for all ages, David weaves classical standards like Vivaldi’s, Brahm’s and Dvorak’s works with hits from the likes of Tom Fogerty, Guns N’ Roses, Metallica and Nirvana. This is the virtuoso violinist’s third PBS special, following his second highly successful U.S. tour, and performances on Oprah, E! News, and Fox & Friends. He also recently appeared on the ABC ratings giant Dancing With the Stars.

“A captivating champion
of the right of rock and classical music to share chords.”
Known in Britain as “the David Beckham of the violin,” David Garrett has touched hearts and astounded audiences around the world. From Vivaldi to Queen, and from Schubert to Michael Jackson, the young German violinist masterfully blends classical standards with rock and pop hits for a truly one of a kind musical experience. David has carved out a unique and wholly new artistic path, paying as much homage to Metallica as he does to Mozart. On the famous “Last Night Of Proms” in the UK, he played to a crowd of 40,000 people. His first album released in the UK became a Top 20 chart fixture.
“David Garrett is already the stuff of legend
– in him is enshrined an entire corpus of virtuoso violin art,
expounded with a fearsome beauty beyond comprehension.”
