Tune in on May 1 at 12 PM (ET) for a sensational program of special works arranged for cello quintet

We're coming to you from the Kronberg Academy in Kronberg im Taunus, Germany, for the weekly concert of the Kronberg Academy Young Virtuosi Series, featuring cellist Bryan Cheng. For this concert, Bryan is joined by violinists Inmo Yang, Cosima Soulez Larivière, violist Natalie Loughran, and cellist Anouchka Hack, performing special arrangements of works by Piazzolla and Brahms for string quintet.

Born in Ottawa, Cheng made his Carnegie Hall debut with a sold-out recital when he was just 14 years old. At 20, Cheng appeared as a soloist with the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen in the Elbphilharmonie. He is the first-ever cellist to win the Verbier Festival’s prestigious Prix Yves Paternot.

Cheng received his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from the Universität der Künste Berlin and is now studying at Germany’s Kronberg Academy. He has been a prizewinner in major competitions, including the Queen Elisabeth, Geneva, and Paulo.

Every Wednesday at 12 PM (ET), audiences can watch an hour-long concert featuring the Kronberg Academy's students from the Professional Studies program and the Sir András Schiff Performance Program for Young Pianists. Recorded at the Carl Bechstein Hall, the recital programs were designed by the young artists themselves, and often feature their friends from the Academy’s Bachelor and Master programs performing alongside them.
