Info for Russian Legends (A short story of Russian Cello Music)



For their third audite album, the Cheng² Duo ventures to Russia. Portraying part of the cello’s musical history in Russia, Bryan and Silvie Cheng perform a programme centring on three great sonatas for cello and piano by Shostakovich, Rachmaninov and Prokofiev, which are contrasted by a series of shorter works.

​After forays to Spain and France, the Cheng2 Duo ventures to Russia for their third audite album.

The Süddeutsche Zeitung described Bryan and Silvie Cheng's last CD, dedicated to Spanish music, as an "event of austere and severe, but also dreamy beauty", and praised the siblings' interpretation for "finding the correct idiom which manages to raise the temperature". Their new double album centres on the three great sonatas for cello and piano by Dmitri Shostakovich, Sergei Rachmaninov and Sergei Prokofiev. The Cheng2 Duo contrasts these with a series of shorter pieces by Anton Arensky, Piotr Tchaikovsky and Alexander Glazunov. This comprehensive programme represents a short history of Russian cello music which began with the foundation of the great music conservatoires in Saint Petersburg and Moscow in the middle of the nineteenth century.
