Conductor Laureate Christoph Eschenbach makes a grand return with rising star violinist Ray Chen, whose supreme talent, sense of humor, and social media savvy have been redefining what it means to be a classical musician. Not only does Chen’s musicianship transmit to a global audience in live performance, he has also appeared in Amazon’s breakout hit Mozart in the Jungle and struck a partnership with Giorgio Armani. This program features Chen in Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto—one of the most treasured in the repertoire—and is certain to be unforgettable.
