    A former child prodigy of the classical world, David Garrett now excites international fans with his spectacular fusions of rock and pop with symphonic or baroque traditions. With Music, to be released July 30 by Decca Records, Garrett pushes the limits and shows the world what violin playing is all about.

    "I never stopped playing classical music," Garrett points out. "But when you become really accomplished on the violin, you can literally do anything. It's just a matter of what you really want to do with music."

    When asked about the ambition behind the new album, he explained, "I try to see classical music in a new perspective. On the other hand, I want to integrate elements of classical music into pop yet leave its original energy intact."
