It has been announced today that Australian violinist, VC Artist Ray Chen will replace Janine Jansen for an upcoming performance with the London Symphony Orchestra – due to an ongoing health concern.

Ray will perform the Sibelius Violin Concerto with conductor Michael Tilson Thomas and the London Symphony Orchestra on Thursday the 17th of May – at the Barbican Hall, in London.

 

“What an incredible honour to be called to the stage for this occasion with the London Symphony … it will be my debut performance with the ensemble, and I couldn’t be more excited …” Ray has told The Violin Channel.

“But that being said, of course I’m wishing my violinist-crush Janine Jansen a speedy recovery … and healthy and safe return to her concert schedule,” he has said.

The 40-year-old Dutch superstar violinist has been forced to cancel a number of engagements in recent weeks – including three performances of the Brahms Double Concerto, with VC Artist Pablo Ferrandez and the Vienna Symphony – and a performance of the Sibelius Concerto with the Berlin Philharmonic.

We wish Janine a speedy recovery.
