Winner of the International Queen Elisabeth Competition (2009) and the Yehudi Menuhin Competition (2008), Ray Chen is among the most compelling young violinists today. His premiere album Virtuoso, released worldwide on Sony Classical in 2011, won the prestigious Echo Klassik Award. Following its success, Ray Chen was profiled by The Strad and Gramophone magazines as “the one to watch”. The second recording, featuring the Tchaikovsky and Mendelssohn violin concertos, was the result of Ray Chen’s artistic partnership with Daniel Harding and the Swedish Radio Orchestra. “It’s hard to say something new with these celebrated works. However, Ray Chen performs them with the kind of authority that puts him in the same category as Maxim Vengerov.” (Corriere della Sera) In Maestro Vengerov’s own words: “Ray has proven himself to be a very pure musician with great qualities such as a beautiful youthful tone, vitality and lightness. He has all the skills of a truly musical interpreter.”
