Pianist makes Carnegie Hall debut


Hong Kong pianist Rachel Cheung made her recital debut at New York's Carnegie Hall on March 27, performing classical pieces by Rameau, Schumann, and Liszt.  Director of HKETONY Joanne Chu attended the concert and offered the young musician her enthusiastic support.

Cheung, a Steinway Artist, was the winner of the Audience Award and the first Hong Kong finalist at the 2017 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition. She said her objective as a performer was to pay tribute to the composers by conveying the emotion behind the music. Cheung had won numerous prizes and awards, including fifth prize at the Leeds International Piano Competition, and was a semifinalist at the International Fryderyk Chopin Piano Competition. She had studied with Peter Frankl at the Yale School of Music and with Eleanor Wong at the Hong Kong Academy for the Performing Arts.
