Ray Chen to replace David Garrett
27 March 2018
Accompanied by the Orchestre National de Belgique, under the direction of James Feddeck, Ray Chen, the highly acclaimed violinist, will perform at the Wiesbaden Kurhaus on Tuesday, 27 March 2018, at 8 p.m. He will replace David Garrett, who is still recovering from a herniated disc.
Ray Chen, who will play the same programme, is currently one of the hottest young artists. Having won several awards, the musician of Australian and Taiwanese descent earned growing recognition while performing in the "Junge Wilde" series of concerts at the Konzerthaus Dortmund concert hall. His guest appearance in the Golden Globe winning "Mozart in the Jungle" series as well as an ECHO Klassik award for his first solo album have confirmed his reputation.
As a stand-in for David Garrett in recent performances at the Hamburg Elbphilharmonie and the Düsseldorf Tonhalle, he received praise and accolades from public and press alike.
