David Garrett is a record-breaking German pop and crossover violinist and recording artist who holds the record of World’s Fastest Violinist confirmed by The Book of Guinness World Records.
Garrett received his first Stradivarius violin at the age of 11, courtesy of German president Richard von Weizsäcker, after having performed for him. At the age of 13, Garrett recorded two CDs, appeared on German and Dutch television, and gave a concert in the residence of the President of Germany, the Villa Hammerschmidt, at Dr. von Weizsäcker’s personal invitation.
Few days ago, David Garrett had a show in Saint Petersburg, Russia, where he performed Eminem’s greatest hit “Lose Yourself” and it was pretty awesome. You can check the live performance below:
