Since debuting at Carnegie Hall in 2011, the Cheng² Duo (pronounced Cheng Squared Duo) continues to be celebrated by audiences and critics alike for its artistic excellence, generous spirit, and compelling vibrancy. Named one of CBC Music’s “30 hot Canadian classical musicians under 30”, the brother-and-sister duo is formed by 21-year-old cellist Bryan Cheng, recipient of the 2017 Canada Council for the Arts Michael Measures Prize, and pianist Silvie Cheng, recipient of the Roy M. Rubinstein Award for exceptional promise in piano performance.
Quickly becoming an audience favourite wherever they perform, the dynamic duo has been making music together for the past 15 years, presenting recitals in notable venues and at international festivals in North America, Europe, and Asia. The duo’s refreshing approach to classical music is steeped in a rare balance of infectious joy and enthusiasm in their playing on one hand, and mature, historically informed, and profound interpretations on the other. Cheng² Duo has released two critically-acclaimed albums on the German label audite: Violonchelo del fuego (2018) and Violoncelle français (2016), which was selected by WCRB Classical Radio Boston as one of its top 8 CDs of the Year.
