Biography

Committed to bringing classical music to 21st-century audiences through innovative programming and engaging presentations, Canadian cellist and pianist Bryan and Silvie Cheng have been making music together for the past 13 years. In 2011, when they were called upon to replace an injured musician for a scheduled recital in Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall, they officially became known as Cheng² Duo, pronounced Cheng Squared Duo. The duo’s New York recital debut was met with an enthusiastic full-house audience, as well as critical acclaim, and they were invited back to Weill Hall for another sold-out recital in 2013. Named by CBC Music as one of 2015’s “30 hot Canadian classical musicians under 30”, the sibling duo is formed by 19-year-old cellist Bryan Cheng, a guest soloist with numerous orchestras since his debut at age 10 in Montreal under the baton of Yuli Turovsky and a top prizewinner of several competitions, and pianist Silvie Cheng, a recent graduate from the Manhattan School of Music in New York and the recipient of the Roy M. Rubinstein Award for “exceptional promise in piano performance”. The Cheng² Duo's wide-ranging repertoire for cello and piano has brought them to present recitals in notable venues throughout North America (Canada and the US), Europe (Belgium, Czech Republic, Germany, Holland, Italy), and Asia (China and South Korea). The duo has performed at the Aspen Music Festival, Trasimeno Music Festival, and Ottawa International Chamber Music Festival, among other festivals, and has also been featured on CBC Radio and Vermont Public Radio. The duo's debut album "Violoncelle Français" is the first in a set to be recorded with audite, with each album focusing on the music of a particular country.

    CD zum Sonntag

    Sie zeichnen ein Panorama der Klangwelten zwischen 1860 und 1910, das bei allen Cello-Freunden die Herzen höher schlagen lassen dürfte: Saint-Saëns, Franck, Fauré, dazu die wunderbar impressionistische Sonate von Debussy. Und auch wenn die Zusammenstellung ein wenig Kitschgefahr bereit hält: Die ausgewählten Mélodies und Sonaten sind stilsicher und empfindsam musiziert von einem Duo, das sich hörbar gut aufeinander eingestellt hat. …
