Label: Sony Classical
In case you missed it from the title, the virtuosity of 22-year-old Curtis-trained, Taiwanese-Australian violinist Ray Chen is on full display with the Fritz Kreisler adaptation of Giuseppe Tartini's "Devil's Trill." Even on a work of such technically gripping difficulty, Chen's tone is remarkably round and his musicality is alluring. His Bach? Perhaps a bit overwrought at times, but undeniably energetic. Therein lies the strength of Chen's debut: an ability to deliver a commanding and varied set with equal ease.
