Now I know the Mom's out there are probably saying "Who's that hot guy?" LOL! He is a cutie isn't he! David Garret, named best-selling new classical artist of 2009. He has just released his second album titled Rock Symphonies.

A few fun facts about David Garrett -
  • Played in the London Philharmonic, Los Angeles Philharmonic & the Russian National Orchestra by age 12
  • Born in Germany and 39 years old
  • His debut album for Decca, entitled David Garrett, debuted at #1 on the Classical Crossover Chart & held the position for 31 solid weeks!
  • Holds the Guinness Book of World Records title for the fastest performance of "The Flight of the Bumblebee," which he performed in front of over 18,000 fans
His newest album, Rock Symphonies brings together Garrett's great loves: classical music and the rock music of his generation. The album uniquely blends classical violin with rock-and-roll songs from bands such as Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith and Nirvana. I wasn't sure what to expect when I first heard we would be reviewing this cd. I like classical music, but it's not something I will turn on the radio and listen to. Then I heard the rock part - and wow! This is really amazing, I even keep this cd in my car now and play it for the kids on our long drives. Yes....maybe I might like it more than they do :) It makes a for a fun ride while we all "rock out"!

You can catch Garrett on PBS this month during a special showing of his sold-out Berlin show, where he preformed in front of over 18,000 fans!

My kids and I give this album thumbs way up!! So much better than expected and has become a family favorite!! The album debuted at #2 on the Billboard Classical Crossover chart (second to Sting at #1) and is still holding its position.

Rock Symphonies is available at Best Buy, iTunes and www.amazon.com
