Bookmark and Share

Deemed one of today's most charismatic and compelling young violinists, Ray Chen presents The Golden Age – a collection of chamber and orchestral works and his first recording on Decca Classics since signing to the label. Chen handpicked a selection of works, all of which celebrate the "golden age" of the violin. The centerpiece is Max Bruch's Violin Concerto No. 1, performed with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and conductor Robert Trevino. The album also features compositions and arrangements from legendary violinists Fritz Kreisler and Jascha Heifetz, with pianist Julien Quentin.
