San Francisco favorite Ray Chen returns to Davies Symphony Hall in a hearty recital program that opens with Grieg's sweeping and contemplative Violin Sonata No. 3 (dedicated to the German painter Franz von Lenbach) and Saint-Saëns’ soaring and heroic Violin Sonata No. 1. Chen's undeniable virtuosity is on full display in the program’s closing three works: J.S. Bach’s Chaconne from Partita No. 2 in D minor, arguably one of the most challenging solo works in the repertoire; an arrangement of Debussy’s magical Clair de lune; and Ravel's gypsy-inflected Tzigane.
