Heralded as one of the greatest hopes of the violin world, young virtuoso Ray Chen has won acclaim for compelling “violin playing of the highest order” (BBC Music Magazine). Chen’s performances radiate his vitality and winsome stage presence, grounded in superb technique and a deeply satisfying musicianship that displays maturity well beyond his age. Born in Taiwan and raised in Australia, this “phenomenal talent” (The Washington Post) won the Queen Elisabeth Competition and the Yehudi Menuhin Competition.
