Toronto recital
"More important is the musical evidence that [Cheng] is now speaking not with the voice of generic virtuosity and conventional received wisdom, but with her own voice, about individual works in which she is passionately and artistically involved...It was enthralling."

Globe and Mail (Toronto)

Waterloo recital
“…nothing short of magic…a pianist one could listen to for hours…”

The Record (Waterloo, Ontario)


Vancouver Symphony
“One of the best Mozart players around, Cheng has a particularly powerful sound, but one so focused that it always seems transparent and sparkling. Her playing was clean, crisp, and flawless…”

Vancouver Sun


Pacific Symphony
“Cheng proved a marvelous technician and stylist. [She] fully comprehended the jazz rhythms and accents and put them across with equal parts verve and clarity. She skimmed a gliding legato, jabbed at offbeat entrances, had a bounce in her step.”

Orange County Register


Manitoba Chamber Orchestra
“Cheng’s fearless interpretation of Shostakovich’s Concerto No. 1, in C minor, for Piano, Trumpet and Strings, Op. 35 showed her virtuosic chops in an electrifying performance. … Cheng knows this work cold.”
