Ms. Chen released 2 albums in USA and Europe respectively. Her debut solo CD Diary in G is a testament to her superb talents as an interpreter. The longtime critic Jerry Dubins wrote in his glowing review, “I can honestly say that no other performance and recording of this Sonata (Schubert Sonata No. 18 in G major) I’ve heard has won me over as this one has….” Her concerti album with the Camerata RCO–members of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra also received high praise from critic James Forrest “…the amount of insight she brings to this music, so early in her career, speaks volumes for the inherent gifts with which she has endowed…Chen’s youth can entirely equal the playing of Argerich recorded with an additional quarter-century of years and experience behind her.”
