Australian violinist Ray Chen dazzles with his debut recording for Decca. At its centre is Bruch’s Violin Concerto No. 1, and the album goes on to showcase works from the ‘golden age’ of the violin, with arrangements / transcriptions by Kreisler and Heifetz. ‘Stephan Koncz’s arrangement of Debussy’s Clair de lune highlights Chen’s almost miraculous featherweight touch, which is whispered without sounding wispy’ The Times
