Interview with celebrity violinist David Garrett


Violin Virtuoso David Garrett has been hailed as one of the best violinists of his generation. The child prodigy had his first encounter with the violin at the age of four. By 10, he was gracing the stage, and by 13, he became the youngest-ever artist to sign with Deutsche Gramophone, the highly-regarded classical music record label.

Throughout his music career spanning decades, he has achieved many milestones. He has garnered international awards, sold millions of records, performed at prestigious events, and broke the Guinness World Record from 2008 to 2010 as the fastest violinist in the world. And the list goes on.

CGTN host Louisa Lee interviewed Garrett ten years ago, and 10 years later, the duo meet for a nostalgic chat in south China's Shenzhen City as part of his world tour for his new "Iconic" album. Garrett shares with Louisa about his dreams and desires, aims and ambitions, which have "music" written all over it.
