Award-winning recording artist Ray Chen announces his new studio album fully professionally recorded and released from home during the global lockdown. Entitled Solace, Ray shares works from J. S. Bach's Six Sonatas and Partitas for Solo Violin, released digitally on August 7 via Decca Classics.

The events of 2020 which brought the world to a standstill have also created a time for self-reflection, and a renewed appreciation of the power of music. Ray explains, "Music heals the soul, it calms us, centers us, and creates focus in our lives. Bach's music, in particular, written so far ahead of its time, reminds us of an important message: that humanity struggles onwards despite the odds."
