Sony Classical is pleased to announce the release of Ray Chen's first concerto recording on the label with the two Romantic masterpieces that have played a significant role in the young artist's career to date. His interpretation of the Mendelssohn E minor Violin Concerto led to his triumph at the 2008 Yehudi Menuhin International Competition for Young Violinists. The following year the violinist's insightful performance of the Tchaikovsky Concerto secured him first prize at the Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels. For his second Sony release Ray Chen is joined by the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra under the baton of its musical director Daniel Harding.
