The Tchaikovsky and Mendelssohn concertos both have played a significant role in Ray Chen's career. His superb performance of the works led to his triumph at two major violin competitions: the 2008 Yehudi Menuhin Competition and first prize in the prestigious Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels a year later. Chen brings a fresh interpretation to the cornerstones of violin repertoire and finds a kindred spirit in conductor Daniel Harding and the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra

St. Luke Passion by Krzysztof Penderecki( )

14 editions published in 1990 in Latin and French and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Krzysztof Penderecki's setting of the Passion story as told in the Gospel of St Luke was premièred in 1966 and immediately established a place for itself among the most important large-scale choral works of the twentieth century. Despite its decidedly modernist idiom, the music's emotional power, glowing colours and sonic impact spoke to audiences as well as critics, one of whom described St Luke's Passion as 'the most important bridge between the spirit of the liturgy and modern music.' Strongly influenced by the Passions of J. S. Bach, Penderecki pays homage to the great composer by using the B-A-C-H motif throughout the work, and like Bach he has arranged his Passion in two parts, with monumental choral numbers framing the whole. Penderecki's score is for large forces including an extended orchestra, three mixed choirs, plus a boys' choir, speaker and three vocal soloists (soprano, baritone and bass). On 20th July 2018 these all convened at the Felsenreitschule in Salzburg: l'Orchestre symphonique de Montréal with their principal conductor Kent Nagano, the Warsaw Boys' Choir and Kraków Philharmonic Choir, the three soloists and the actor Sławomir Holland. The occasion was the opening concert of the Salzburg Festival, and in the audience was the composer himself, Krzysztof Penderecki
Funeral music = Muzyka zalobna : for strings ; Chain II : dialogue for violin and orchestra ; Interlude ; Partita for violin and orchestra ; Symphony no. 4 by Witold Lutosławski( )

5 editions published between 1996 and 2005 and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Má vlast by Bedřich Smetana( )

8 editions published between 1994 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Smetana's cycle "My Country" is a pinnacle of symphonic literature. There is nothing quite like it: six musical poems which, while independent of each other, form an organic whole. As a composer, Smetana was in the vanguard. This visionary work is unmistakably personal, connected to the Czech nation's tragic history and to the Bohemian-Moravian landscape; it is not only about memory, it also gives hope for the future, brilliantly describing landscapes of the human soul. As such it goes beyond time, to create something of a lasting significance. This is music of nostalgia, which sets thoughts and emotions free. After hearing "My Country," one emerges stronger. Every one of these six pieces has a tremendous energy, and enables one to live with melancholy and sorrow: the work transforms the listener and enriches his soul
