Ray Chen is a violinist. He's only 24 years old, but already he has played some big big concerts. Nothing, though, compared to the concert he played this past winter in Stockholm. It was the annual Nobel Prize concert. "For me, this has been the most special concert in my life yet, " Chen said. "To play for these Nobel Prize Laureates, that is truly inspiring." We'll hear Chen's inspired performance of Bruch's Violin Concerto No. 1 with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic on Thursday's Performance Today.
