Violinist Robert Chen

Times: Gates: 7:30 pm; Concert: 8:30 pm

Violinist Robert Chen

With the New Year comes a new look at one of the most visible figures of Ravinia’s classical season, Chicago Symphony Orchestra concertmaster Robert Chen. Though he regularly performs solo passages and even concertos with the orchestra, recently including those of Brahms (at Ravinia, 2011) and Bartók (at Orchestra Hall, in April)—the latter earning him praise in the Chicago Tribune for “deploying his silken tone and throbbing vibrato to tenderly expressive effect”—Chen hasn’t been heard at Ravinia with only a piano since his very first appearance at the festival in 2000. For his return to the intimate stage, he promises music from Brahms, Mozart, and the virtuoso (and secret composer) Kreisler, as well as the Sonata for Violin and Piano by John Corigliano, who came of age steeped in the musicianship of Leonard Bernstein—his father a longtime concertmaster of the New York Philharmonic, including under Bernstein’s leadership, and himself becoming an assistant director of the famed Young People’s Concerts. Shades of fellow Americans Bernstein and Copland resonate through the sonata, a model of their modern Romanticism with its vibrant tonality and strident rhythms.
