It’s not a typo: the duo is indeed called Cheng² Duo, in other words Duo Cheng squared. It makes sense considering the cellist is named Bryan Cheng, and the pianist Silvie (again, not a typo!) Cheng – yes, they are siblings. Despite what their last name may suggest, the Chengs are in fact from Canada and made their debuts as soloists with the country’s best orchestras before going on a world tour to pursue their now international career. The family cooperation, as a duo, led them to the present Iberian repertoire, made up almost exclusively of rewritings of works for piano, vocals and orchestra: only Turina’s Danzas fantásticas is performed in its original version for piano solo, and Cassadó’s Suite for cello solo… on cello solo, one could have guessed! What an incredible energy these two bring to the table! Some arrangements are in fact the work of big names such as Maurice Gendron, Cassadó or Piatigorsky. The Spain of Cheng² is packed with fire and flames – who could resist the Song of Wildfire, and of tenderness, of El amor brujo −, Falla’s Siete canciones populares españolas (Seven Spanish Folksongs) are a wonderful achievement. Here is a strong and beautiful album, presenting – with perfect conviction – well-known works but in new formats, thus shining a new musical light onto them. © SM/Qobuz

In your panoramas...
Koechlin, the Alchemist

Deeply rooted in both tradition and innovation, the immense work of Koechlin bewildered his contemporaries due to its many facets, its freedom and its philosophical dimension. The album finally allows us to grasp the full measure of this sound alchemist and brilliant prophet who, most probably, was born before his time… We’ll be thinking of him on November 27th, the date marking 150 years since his birth.

Radu Lupu: an Understated Genius

Radu Lupu was a poet, magician and pianist who pursued the indescribable. The Romanian artist’s musical approach was brought to life by his tormented and fiercely introverted personality, which was always shrouded in mystery. When sat at his piano, he would knead the keys like dough, seeking a powerful, consistent sound. Radu Lupu passed away on the 17th of April 2022, leaving behind a relatively small, yet incredibly valuable, discographic legacy.

François Couperin, the modern harpsichord

A favourite of Louis XIV, François Couperin (1668-1733) was the harpsichord superstar of the 18th century. At the time, the harpsichord was a prestigious instrument which was at the height of its fame (although it would return to obscurity in the following century), and Couperin revolutionised the way it was played, breaking a path that would later be trod by other virtuosos of the period like Dandrieu or Rameau. The Quebecois harpsichordist Olivier Fortin tells Qobuz the story of "Couperin the Great".
