Violin sensation Ray Chen returns to perform Shostakovich’s formidable First Violin Concerto, a deeply personal work that was hidden from the scrutiny of the Stalinist regime. The program also includes Ravel’s hauntingly beautiful Pavane for a Dead Princess and Richard Strauss' contemplative and powerful tone poem, Death and Transfiguration.
