In defence of David Garrettmain
The defence? Violinists are there to behave badly. Paganini showed the way. The violinist is an ‘erotic phenomenon’. Nothing is hotter than the Mendelssohn concerto. Garrett belongs to a strong tradition.
They seem to be missing the point. Sexy is not the same as bizarre.
From the case notes: Youdan says the violinist’s “behaviour began to take a dark turn for the worse” on their first Christmas together, when [Garrett] responded to a Craiglist ad for a “sex slave,” hoping he could keep this person in a cage.
An erotic phenomenon?
