Celebrated sibling duo to perform in Nelson

Cheng2 Duo, cello and violin, will perform Jan. 30 at the Capitol

The Cheng2 Duo, presented by the Nelson Overture Concerts Society, will bring their brother-and-sister talents and a Stradivarius cello to Nelson’s Capitol Theatre on Wednesday Jan. 30, at 7:30 pm.

The Ottawa-born duo of cellist Bryan Cheng and pianist Silvie Cheng are rising young virtuosos quickly making their mark on the international stage. Recently featured on CBC’s list of 30 Hot Canadian Classical Musicians Under 30, the duo made their Carnegie Hall debut in 2011.

They have since toured throughout North America, Europe, and China, and have released two critically-acclaimed albums Violonchelo del fuego (2018) featuring Spanish works, and Violoncelle français (2016), which was selected as one of WCRB’s top CDs of 2017.

The New York Concert Review encapsulated Cheng2 Duo’s special bond saying “the New York recital debut of Bryan and Silvie Cheng was infused with a spirit of thoughtfulness and generosity. The obvious affection between the two siblings extends beyond the familial sphere into the audience, and most importantly, into the music itself.”

The duo will perform a program titled Romantic Impressions, highlighting giants of the 19th and 20th century repertoire including Brahms’ 2nd Sonata for Cello and Piano, op. 99, and Claude Debussy’s Sonata for Cello and Piano in D Minor.

Tickets are available at the Capitol Theatre in person, by phone, or online at www.capitoltheatre.ca. Admission is free for students aged 18 and under. Individual tickets: $27.50. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult.
