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

"Although Brahms penned but one violin concerto, this one work is effectively a melting pot of some of the composer's finest ideas. Not only does the work stand as one of the greatest of all violin concertos, but it represents the very best of hte composer's creative ability. The Violin Concert (1879), like the Second Symphony of the previous year, is one of the composer's sunniest works, perhaps reflecting the fact that both were written at one of Brahm's favourite locations on the Carinthian 'Worther Sea'. This is Brahms at his most lyrical, a heady mix of autumnal mellowness tinged with melancholy, and buoyant high spirits. Written for the great violin virtuoso Joachim, it was and still is an enormous technical challenge to the soloist. The long 'symphic' introduction is one of the composer's finest creations and the entire lengthy first movement is a gradual unfolding of song-like simplicity. The Adagio contains a nostalgic melody for solo oboe whilst the finale is a brilliant Hungarian dance. Unbottoned in its gaiety, it displays orchestral writing of great originality, with trilling winds and jaunty high spirits. The violin Sonata No. 2 is one of seven instrumental sonatas with piano accompaniement. Written in 1866 whilst Brahms was "awaiting the arrival of a dear friend" (Herman Spries) at Lake Thun, it is lyrical and serene, with many long-spun cantabile melodies."--insert, pages 2-3
