EDITORS’ NOTES

What do Nirvana, Metallica, and Led Zeppelin have in common? They all sound positively rad when played by a symphony orchestra. With these hard-rocking tunes, violinist David Garrett wanted to attract a younger audience to the classical world, bridging the gap between two illustrious traditions. “Kashmir” takes on a cinematic, almost folky quality via the prodigy’s vibrant strings. Garrett plays the melodies of “Live and Let Die” and Aerosmith’s classic “Walk This Way” with a simultaneously edgy and satisfying tone, prompting the question of whether it’s proper etiquette to get up and dance during an orchestra concert.
