Waltzes, Tangos and a Minuet: Bryan Cheng
24-year-old cellist Bryan Cheng is fast-becoming internationally renowned, having already won second prize and Audience Choice at the Geneva International Music Competition. His Toronto solo recital debut includes an energetic program that pays homage to the magical intersection of music, dance, and nature at the Toronto Music Garden. Through the voice of the prized ‘Bonjour’ Stradivarius cello from 1696 (on loan from the Canada Council for the Arts Musical Instrument Bank), Cheng will perform masterworks and rarely heard gems of the cello repertoire, spanning four continents and three centuries. The program will culminate in Johann Sebastian Bach’s Cello Suite No. 1 in G Major, the piece that inspired Yo-Yo Ma to create the Toronto Music Garden in 1999.
