The New York Times New York Concert Review All Music Guide The New York Times The Washington Times

The New York Times

“Bach as you’ve never heard it … [Mr. Cheung] surmounts the contrapuntal hurdles and offers a stylish, deeply expressive interpretation [of the Goldberg Variations] notable for its clear voicing, eloquent phrasing and wide range of color and dynamics …”

New York Concert Review

“… Mr. Cheung’s performance of his own arrangements was expressive, sensitive and unpretentious, and left the listeners with the feeling of comfort. The artist created perfect legato by carefully matching the reverberation and decay from one note to the next.”

All Music Guide

“These are in the nature of showpieces for Cheung’s artistry, to be sure, but they’re beautifully done, and they attain the elusive quality of making the sounds of the instrument into a discrete world of their own.”

The New York Times

“Here he offered a dexterous, expressively colored performance of the Allegro from Bach’s Keyboard Concerto No. 1 in D minor, in a version for string quartet, double bass and marimba.”

The Washington Times

“Tuneful, neo-Romantic yet technically difficult, these pieces not only showcased Mr. Cheung’s mastery of his instrument but also demonstrated his considerable skill and promise as a composer in his own right – one who writes the kind of music people will want to hear.”

“The word marimba means ‘singing wood’. Something about the natural resonance of wood and how the sound floats in the air makes my entire body vibrate. It’s not only an instrument that you hear, but it’s also like a living musical being that you feel in your heart and soul.” ~ PIUS CHEUNG
