Warner/Chappell Music, the music publishing arm of Warner Music Group, announced that it has signed a worldwide publishing agreement with international superstar, German classical violinist, songwriter and recording artist, David Garrett. Effective immediately, Warner/Chappell will administer and publish Garrett’s future songwriting. Lars Karlsson, Managing Director, Warner/Chappell Germany, made the announcement.
Garrett said, “Warner/Chappell Music has done a lot of great work with some of my favorite composers and musicians, and I’m delighted to have them as my new publishing partner.”
Karlsson added, “David Garrett is an incredible artist and one of the most innovative figures in classical music today. We’re thrilled that he’s joining the Warner/Chappell family and we look forward to creating new opportunities for his music that build his global popularity.”
Garrett’s manager, Rick Blaskey, added, “Apart from his unique ability to create new arrangements of iconic classical works, the next phase of David’s career will also demonstrate his extraordinary ability as a film composer and songwriter. The first examples of this are David’s score for his debut movie, The Devil’s Violinist, as well as two duets that he has written for his new album, Garrett v Paganini; one is with Nicole Scherzinger—which will also be the closing theme song for the movie—and the other is a stunning duet with Andrea Bocelli.”
