David Garrett gets over the heartbreak

Shutting the file on his recent erotic turbulence, the German violinist has been awarded the Frankfurter Musikpreis for 2017, a gift worth 15,000 Euros. The prize is cross-generic, as you can see from the winners below. It has consistently bypassed the leading German violinists – Mutter, Faust, Fischer, Tetzlaff, Zimmermann. Maybe they don’t like the violin much in Frankfurt. Past winners: 2017 David Garrett, Violinist 2016 Al Jarreau, Sänger und Songautor 2015 Peter Sadlo, Schlagzeuger 2014 Ernie Watts, Saxophonist 2013 Marie-Luise Neunecker, Hornistin und Instrumentalpädagogin 2012 John McLaughlin, Gitarrist und Komponist 2011 Anne Sofie von Otter, Mezzo-Sopranistin 2010 Keith Emerson, Keyboarder und Komponist 2009 Dr. José Antonio Abreu, Dirigent, Komponist und Mentor 2008 Paquito D’Rivera, Saxophonist, Klarinettist, Komponist 2007 Peter Eötvös, Dirigent, Komponist und Lehrer 2006 Peter Gabriel, Pop-/Rockmusiker 2005 György Ligeti, Komponist 2004 Udo Lindenberg, Deutsch-Rocker und Pop-Dichter 2003 Walter Levin, Violinist 2002 – 2001 Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Sänger 2000 Klaus Doldinger, Saxophonist 1999 Michael Gielen, Dirigent und Komponist 1998 Peter Herbolzheimer, Arrangeur/Interpret/Komponist 1997 Hans Zender, Komponist und Dirigent 1996 Wolfgang Niedecken, Sänger und Songwriter 1995 Tabea Zimmermann, Bratscherin 1994 Brian Eno, Musiker und Klangkünstler 1993 Harry Kupfer, Regisseur 1992 Georg Solti, Dirigent 1991 Aribert Reiman, Komponist 1990 Chick Corea, Jazz-Pianist 1989 Ludwig Güttler, Trompeter 1988 Heinz Holliger, Oboist 1987 Carl Dahlhaus, Musikwissenschaftler 1986 Albert Mangelsdorff, Jazz-Posaunist 1985 Brigitte Fassbaender, Kammersängerin 1984 Alfred Brendel, Pianist 1983 Edgar Krapp, Organist 1982 Gidon Kremer, Geiger
