Captivating audiences and critics alike, the Cheng² Duo distinguishes itself with its uncompromising musical integrity, undeniable chemistry, and unparalleled communication with its listeners. The brother-and-sister duo is formed by 23-year-old cellist Bryan Cheng, playing the Canada Council for the Arts ca. 1696 Bonjour Stradivarius, and pianist Silvie Cheng, recipient of the Roy M. Rubinstein Award for exceptional promise in piano performance. Named one of CBC Music’s “30 hot Canadian classical musicians under 30”, the young and dynamic duo has been invited to perform at notable venues throughout North America, Europe, and Asia, including two sold-out recitals at Carnegie Hall and concerts in every Canadian province. International festival appearances include Aspen (USA), Trasimeno (Italy), Usedom (Germany), Ottawa Chamberfest, Toronto, and Festival of the Sound (Canada), as well as broadcasts on major radio/TV stations across North America and Europe. Cheng² Duo has released three critically-acclaimed albums on German label audite: Russian Legends (2019), Violonchelo del fuego (2018), and Violoncelle français (2016), which was selected as one of WCRB Classical Radio Boston’s top 8 CDs of 2017. This recording series has received international accolades for its “musical sensitivity”, “taste, sure flair for phrasing, and beauty of sound“ (Das Orchester, Germany), and “passionate, invigorating...masterful performances” (MusicWeb International, UK).
