Leland Chen: In his book Great masters of the Violin Boris Schwartz wrote: “What made his performance so impressive was his musical versatility: he seemed to master every style from Bach to Bartok and at the end dazzled the listeners with Vieuxtemps’ Fifth Concerto. Chen’s technique is impeccable, his tone warm and sensuous his musicianship serious and probing. Chen is a major talent destined for an international career.” Leland Chen made his London debut with the Philharmonia Orchestra at the Barbican and since that time has appeared with the Philharmonia, London Philharmonic and London Symphony Orchestras and toured North America with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
He has toured Poland with the Polish Chamber Orchestra and Germany with the Warsaw Sinfonia and has also performed in Europe with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe and Netherlands Philharmonic. Following the enormous success of his New York debut he gave a recital tour of over sixty cities in the USA. He has appeared at many European festivals including Gstaad and Schleswig-Holstein.
