The Cheng² Duo offers a rare glimpse into the Nordic voice of the cello and piano. Known mostly for his symphonic works, Jean Sibelius’s large-scale harmonic language translates well into his chamber pieces, portraying a serene Finnish sound world. The Estonian Arvo Pärt mesmerizes with his ethereal Fratres, weaving a ghostly musical tapestry akin to the Aurora Borealis. Bringing us into the rich and passionate atmosphere of Soviet Russia, Yuri Shaporin is one of the most underplayed yet brilliant voices of his era. Finally, Edvard Grieg thrusts us into a uniquely Norwegian landscape, replete with crashing waves, howling winds and haunting melodies. The Chengs and the North await you!
