Angela Cheng recordings

On the occasion of winning the grand prize at the Montreal International Music Competition in 1988, Cheng's performances of André Prévost's Variations et thème and Brahms' Concerto No. 1 with the MSO conducted by Franz-Paul Decker were recorded on cassette (RCI 654). She received enthusiastic reviews for her debut recording of two Mozart concerti with Mario Bernardi and the CBC Vancouver Orchestra. Other significant CDs include Clara Schumann's Concerto in A Minor with JoAnn Falletta and the Women's Philharmonic (Koch International); selected works of Clara and Robert Schumann; and four Spanish concerti with Hans Graf and the Calgary Philharmonic (CBC Records). In 2002, with trumpeter Jens Lindemann, Mario Bernardi, and the CBC Radio Orchestra, Cheng recorded Piano Concerto No. 1 and No. 2 of Shostakovich, for the film The Overcoat (SMCD 5216 CBC Records). (This project began as the Vancouver Playhouse Theatre's production of a play by Nikolai Gogol.)
