Violinist David Garrett Cancels Seven Further Concerts Due to Ongoing Back Woes

German violin soloist David Garrett has cancelled seven further upcoming European performances – due to his ongoing herniated disc issue in his back

It has been announced today that German violin soloist David Garrett has cancelled seven further upcoming European performances, in Frankfurt, Wiesbaden, Interlaken, Mannheim, Regensburg and Essen – due to his ongoing herniated disc issue in his back.

The announcement come just weeks after the 37 year old was forced to cancel performances in Monaco, Basel, Luxembourg, Dresden, Parma, Graz, Lucerne, Kiev and Sofia.

"Dear friends, I'm feeling a little better, but unfortunately the healing process takes longer than expected ..." David has said today via social media.

"The prognoses of my doctors are still very positive and they expect a full recovery ... however, at the moment, it's very important for me to look after myself and give my body the time needed to completely regenerate ..." he has said.

"Unfortunately, that also means that we have to cancel more concerts ... I'm sure, you understand this and I would like to thank you very much for all your encouraging, loving messages."

David’s 24th and 27th of March performances in Frankfurt and Wiesbaden, with the National Orchestra of Belgium, will now be replaced by Australian VC Artist Ray Chen.



16 year old American violinist Elli Choi will replace his performances on the 7th and 8th of April in Interlaken - with the Zakhar Bron Festival Orchestra. 

David’s 22nd, 23rd and 26th of March concerts in Mannheim, Regensburg and Essen have now been cancelled, his management has indicated.

We wish David a speedy recovery.
