BSO and Ray Chen Perform Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto at StrathmoreThe Baltimore Symphony Orchestra (BSO) performs May 24 at 8 p.m. at the Music Center at Strathmore, 5301 Tuckerman Lane, North Bethesda. Renowned guest conductor Hans Graf and violinist Ray Chen join the BSO for this performance.
Known for his wide range of repertoire and creative programming, the distinguished Austrian conductor Hans Graf is one of today’s most highly respected musicians. Appointed music director of the Houston Symphony in 2001, Mr. Graf concluded his tenure in May 2013 and is the longest serving music director in the orchestra’s history. He currently holds the title of conductor laureate.
Winner of the Queen Elisabeth and Yehudi Menuhin Competitions, Ray Chen is among the most compelling young violinists today. Chen has released three critically acclaimed albums on Sony: a recital program “Virtuoso” of works by Bach, Tartini, Franck, and Wieniawski, and the Mendelssohn and Tchaikovsky concertos with Swedish Radio Orchestra and Daniel Harding.
