Event Description

Violinist Ray Chen has it all: charisma for days, a deep musical sense, and incredible virtuosity. His recital with pianist Julio Elizalde puts his talents on full display with a program ranging from a lush and lyrical violin sonata by Ludwig van Beethoven, to Igor Stravinsky’s Tchaikovsky-inspired Divertimento for Violin and Piano, through to Giuseppe Tartini’s fiendishly demanding Devil’s Trill Sonata, impassioned Hungarian Dances by Johannes Brahms and the blistering roulades of Pablo de Sarasate’s Zigeunerweisen.
