Pyrotechnic Violin

Concert Hall, QPAC

Pyrotechnic Violin

​Ray Chen grew up in Queensland and we are always delighted when he returns to his home state to share his gift for high-wire virtuosity on his original Stradivarius instrument.

In these concerts he will be performing Saint-Saëns' 3rd Violin Concerto, a crowdpleasing showpiece if there ever was one. Then his partner-in-art for the evening, conductor Eduardo Strausser – described by New Revolution as ‘a real force of nature’ – will lead the Orchestra into the serene and radiant world of Brahms’ Second Symphony. 

"Despite the last name and the fact that I play violin, I'm no relation to Ray Chen! I love hearing him play and the Saint-Saëns Concerto No.3 is a violinist's dream."

Shane Chen, first violin
