I had the pleasure of listening to German-born (not to mention, uber-handsome) musician David Garrett play live while attending the Bloganthropy Awards dinner held during BlogHer '10 in New York City and remember thinking to myself:
"Man, that boy can play a violin!!!"
Seriously, I love listening to classical music (especially, while I'm attempting to cook dinner) much to the disdain of my children (especially, the teenagers) until...
"Hey, I know THAT song!!!"
It was David's version of "Walk This Way by Aerosmith," aaaand, the words weren't even out of my mouth...
"Ohhhh, he is SO cute,who IS he?!?"
Yes, David Garrett is very cute AND talented.
I was excited to receive a copy of David Garrett's Rock Symphonies CD from my friends at Team Mom and was reminded, once again, what happens when classical music meets classical rock and if, you know, they had a baby.
Want to see?

What did I tell you -- cute, right? -- then again, David Garrett holds the Guinness Book of World Records title for the fastest performance of "The Flight of the Bumblebee," and is clearly a very talented musician who is passionate about the music he creates.

Go ahead and grab a beverage, or a snack perhaps and learn a little more about the making of Rock Symphonies by David Garrett :
FINAL VERDICT: Rock Symphonies by David Garrett is fun and fresh way to enjoy my two favorite music genres -- classical music AND classical rock -- and it doesn't hurt to look at it, or watch David Garrett play live, either :)
