Ray Chen plays Mendelssohn

Sat / Feb 4, 2023 - 8:00PM

Charismatic Ray Chen plays one of the most treasured violin concertos of all time.

About this Performance

Best known as the Music Director of the Ensemble Intercontemporain, conductor/composer Matthias Pintscher leads a program combining a recent work by Olga Neuwirth—“a big, brash, brilliant showpiece, continuing in the raucous line of Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring and Varèse’s Amériques“ (The New York Times)—with classics by Mendelssohn and Brahms. After the brilliant Ray Chen gives his take on the beloved Mendelssohn Violin Concerto, Pintscher illuminates Brahms’ chamber masterpiece redressed in colorful and clarifying orchestral garb by Schoenberg.
