Pressquotes about the concert in the italien Newspaper La Stampa, "Public will go wild for David Garrett and his Tchaikovsky Concert"
"He is one of the greatest, internationally successful violinist and has performed at the RAI Auditorium in Turin. ... It is a whimsical and improvised piece of work, with a rather staggering structure - especially in the first movement. It requires an arobat of the bow, and Garrett is just that. ... This is why Garrett's performace, apart from the beauty of the sound, the purity of the intonation, the wealth of nuances and agility, seemed particularly centered."
