DavidGarrett_Photo1We have two pairs of tickets to give away for world-class violinist, David Garrett, who makes his City National Civic debut on January 21st in support of his latest release Music. Opening is special guest, master accordion player Martynas.

A former child prodigy of the classical world who signed to Deutsche Grammophon when he was only 13, he now provokes Garrett-mania among hordes of international fans with his spectacular fusions of rock and pop with symphonic or baroque traditions. To him, it's all music and all equally valid.

His work is often described as "crossover", but whatever it is, he believes that it "poses an even greater challenge than classical music does because you want to present things to your listeners in a completely new light while putting on a superb violinist's performance."
