The Rise of Classical Rock

6:18:00 PM

How many music lovers this days are into classical?  Perhaps few because of the different genres available in market today.  What if classical music mixed with rock?  Would you think present generation would love it.  Perhaps!  But what if the musician is as good looking is this artist, David Garrett, perhaps ladies will forget about those present boy bands.

Meet David Garrett,  a virtuoso violinist and crossover musician.  He's a star everywhere from the catwalk to the Billboard charts.

He moves between two musical worlds... and it seems as if two hearts are beating in his chest: David Garrett in the world of classical music celebrated his international breakthrough.  But that was not enough.  he has finally re-invented.  With his crossover albums he conquered the rest of the world and sparked enthusiasm everywhere.  After his spectacular success in the pop-rock world, David Garrett presents his new album "LEGACY" - a classical recording of Beethoven's Violin Concerto.

LEGACY has made a historical chart debut in Germany, entering the Media Control Chart at #6!

This is the Highest Entry for a classical instrumental album in the history of the German charts!  It's a sensational result, proving again that David Garrett is an artist at the top of his game in both worlds - classical and crossover.  The debut for 'Legacy" at #6 is the highest for a classical instrumental recording since Media Control charts were launched in Germany in 1962.  The album has also charted in the Top 10 in Austria at #9, and in the top 20 in Switzerland at #18.

DAvid Garrett is Juilliard grad who at 14 became the youngest soloist signed to the prestigious classic label Deutsche Grammophon and joined the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra three years later.

This international superstar has quickly amassed a huge and devoted audience - especially of a much younger fanbase than the listeners usually associated with classical music.  His fresh, vibrant take on classical music has shot new life into this genre.  he has gained international stardom, with chart-topping albums and gold and platinum selling discs across Europe, in the UK and the Far East.  The superpowered David Garrett has experienced huge success with American audience as well.  Not only was he Billboard's best-selling Classical Music Artist of 2009, but was the #9 overall New Artist across all genres.

Garrett's unique, and wholly individual style, pays as much homage to Metallica as to Mozart.  His albums cover an incredibly diverse selection of repertoire, representing his love for many gneres, and the ability to tackle each successfully.  Garrett could have easily had a mainstream classical career, but instead chose to reinvent himself as both a classical and a crossover performer, trailblazing a unique career path as a rare multi-genre artist who reaches out equally to politely murmuring black-tie classical audiences in gilded concert halls, and to the hundreds of thousands of boot-stompin', hand-clappin' masses of all ages that pour into venues across the world to hear him play Smooth Criminal and the Habanera from Carmen.

Videos, fan sites and other media of Garrett abound on the internet, but what you won't see in cyberspace is the atmosphere of relaxed enthusiasm that spreads throughout his audiences, or the scores of children that leave his concerts holding Garrett's CDs in hand, wearing his official tour t-shirt, and begging their parents for a violin.

David Garrett's Legacy is now available in major music stores nationwide.  Exclusively distributed by MCA Music Inc.

Is It A Myth? Corazon: Ang Unang Aswang

10:57:00 PM

Being invited in a press conference a privilege for a blogger.  Knowing and meeting the cast is one of the benefits that the bloggers get.  Having a first glimpse of what's their latest movie, their show, or their latest album.    Thanks to those who are in the industry, bloggers get a peek of what's hot and what's in.

The last press conference that I attended was a little bit eerie.  The feeling in a dark secluded place that would really raise the hair off of your skin.  It's a team up of two known actor and actress for a very trembling yet heart pumping horror love story, Derek Ramsay and Erich Gonzales on Corazon: Ang Unang Aswang.

There are different tales about monsters and creatures that lurks in the dark and Filipinos do have plenty of those stories.  Most of them were told by the old folks of different towns.  Different stories, different creatures and different places.

For this story, Director Richard Somes runs his wild imagination about a loving couple whose love for each other survives the biggest trials confronting them.  Erich plays the character of Corazon whose otherwise peaceful life in a small town is shattered by a crime that brings back her tragic memory about World War II.  While Derek plays the role of Daniel, Corazon's husband, whose obsession in life is to sire a child with Corazon.  Having a baby is the only important thing Corazon wants in life, but she and Daniel have been unsuccessful in having one even if they've been married for five years.

The death of Corazon's father prompt the townspeople to hurt insults at Corazon about her past, forcing her and Daniel to transfer to another town where they seek the help of a woman in their desire to have a baby.  Wish granted.  But the baby comes out stillborn.  Corazon and Daniel's world crumbles and their love for each other is in question.

The casts, Derek and Erich accepted this project with the notion that they will be facing a new challenge in their career and it is something different from the usual characters that they are playing.  According to them they have put more than hundred percent on this project.

This is a very intriguing horror love story that will raise curiosity to those who have viewed the trailer.  Everything will be answered and will be revealed on March 14, 2012 under Star Cinema and Skylight Films.  Other casts of the film are Mark Gil, Tetchie Agbayani, Epi Quizon, Mon Confiado, Dan Alvaro, Sue Prado, Sharlene San Pedro, Bodjie Pascual and Ma. Isabel Lopez.

"Corazon: Ang Unang Aswang" opens in over 100 theaters nationwide on March 14, 2012!
