25 Preludes by Bach and Chopin
Vivianne Cheng – piano
‘Amazingly fast finger-work, lovely shimmering tone, with subtle shading of the dynamics.’ We have little to add to the kind words of The News & Observer. To ensure we can enjoy these qualities to the fullest, the young American Vivianne Cheng has dedicated herself to preludes. 25 of them, in fact: 24 by Chopin and one by Bach. And if this sounds like a strange combination, you’ve never heard Siloti’s arrangement of said prelude. You’ll be amazed by the dreamy layers this late-19th-century Russian tapped into.
