Journey Across Europe

Young, charismatic and supremely talented, Ray Chen is making big waves in the musical world. Winner of two of the world’s most prestigious violin competitions—Queen Elizabeth (2009) and Yehudi Menuhin (2008)—his Carnegie Hall debut and his Musikverein appearance were met with standing ovations. His debut at the 2016 BBC Proms at Royal Albert Hall in London won critical acclaim. Chen is a classical music icon who excites the younger generation, with over 2 million followers on SoundCloud and a huge profile on all social-media platforms. In recital with pianist Julio Elizalde, Chen’s fun yet challenging program features great violin music from Spain, France, Belgium, Germany and Hungary.

PROGRAM

L.V. Beethoven - Violin Sonata Op. 12, No. 1, in D major
C. Saint-Saens - Violin Sonata no. 1 in D minor Op. 75
E. Ysaye - Solo Sonata Op. 27, No. 4 in E minor
M. De Falla - Suite populaire espagnole (6 songs arr. for violin and piano, from '7 Canciones populares españolas')
V. Monti - Czardas

"Recently gaining pop culture status through appearances on Amazon Prime series Mozart in the Jungle, being featured in Vogue and signing with Giorgio Armani, Chen redefines the public’s relationship to classical musicians and their music in the 21st century."
