Melba's latest release is music by Stravinsky with rising star of the violin, RAY CHEN and brilliant pianist TIMOTHY YOUNG.

Experience scintillating performances from Queen Elisabeth Competition winner, violinist Ray Chen, and virtuoso pianist Timothy Young, ablaze with Stravinsky’s wicked wit. Chen makes his debut recording on Melba on a disc of brilliant chamber music which presents Stravinsky at his most entertaining, his spirit brimming with optimism and bravura.

"I have had the pleasure of knowing Ray Chen since his triumph at the Yehudi Menuhin Competition", says Maxim Vengerov. "Ray has proven himself to be a very pure musician with great qualities such as a beautiful youthful tone, vitality and lightness. He has all the skills of a truly musical interpreter."
