David Garrett, a record-breaking German pop and crossover violinist and recording artist, and Martynas Levickis, a young Lithuanian accordion virtuoso, got together at a concert in Berlin and electrified the crowd with a rousing rendition of Hava Nagila.
Garrett attended the Keshet Eilon Masterclasses in Israel in the summers of 1997, 1998, 1999 and 2002. Keshet Eilon is a music center established in the year 1990, located in Kibbutz Eilon, Israel. Its mission is to be a source of strength and support for young gifted violinists.
Martynas recently completed his degree at the Royal Academy of Music in London, and has acquired all the knowledge and technical expertise of a professional classical musician, but he sees classical music as just one part of his personal mix.
