“TO DIE FOR. … tone that carries with it EMOTIONAL DEPTH OF GREAT INTIMACY”

The Huffington Post

Winner of the Queen Elisabeth (2009) and Yehudi Menuhin Competitions (2008), Ray Chen is among the most compelling young violinists today. Chen has appeared with some of the world’s leading orchestras, including the London Philharmonic, the National Symphony Orchestra, and the Orchestre National de France, where he performed in Paris’ Bastille Day 2015 concert televised to 800,000 people. Other highlights include his 2016 debut at the BBC Proms, where he appeared with the BBC Symphony at Royal Albert Hall in London, and his Carnegie Hall debut with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic and Sakari Oramo in 2013. Born in Taiwan and raised in Australia, Chen attended the Curtis Institute of Music at age 15. With quirky, online videos and a following of over two million on SoundCloud, Chen continues to attract new and younger audiences to classical music. He plays the 1715 “Joachim” Stradivarius violin, on loan from the Nippon Music Foundation and once owned by the famed Hungarian violinist Joseph Joachim (1831-1907). With “rock-solid technique and lush sound” (Kurier), “Ray Chen can do pretty much anything he wants on the violin.” (The Washington Post)  www.raychenviolin.com
