ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
MERCEDES CHEUNG [ZHANG]
Born in Canada, ten-year old violinist, Mercedes Cheung, was awarded a full scholarship to study at Juilliard School Pre-College at age eight. A year later, she was offered a full scholarship to study at the Royal Conservatory of Music "Young Artists Performance Academy" and concurrently invited by Centre Director, Barry Shiffman [Tchaikovsky International Violin Competition Juror], to perform as a young guest soloist at the Banff Centre Artists Concert. Mercedes is the youngest to pass the Royal Conservatory of Music Violin Performer Diploma [Practical] exam at age nine.

In 2008, Mercedes gave her “Six Years Old” two-hour solo debut recital; her incredible memory and musical maturity shocked the media. As a soloist, Mercedes performed in countless concerts and events. She was invited by Canadian Idol judge, Farley Flex, to solo at the Durham International Festival in 2010. She made her dazzling solo debut [Vivaldi’s Four Seasons “Winter” Concerto] with the Markham Symphony Orchestra at age ten.

Mercedes remains the world’s youngest violinist ever to perform the most virtuosic repertoire: 24 Paganini Caprices for solo violin, at her New York Carnegie Hall debut recital in 2012. She recorded the complete 24 Caprices on DVD and CD [all in one take] at age ten. Mercedes currently studies with Donald Weilerstein [Faculty, Juilliard School & NEC Dorothy Richard Starling Chair] and her father, Ephraim Cheung.

Mercedes’ regular interviews by all local media include an hour-long featured documentary on Fairchild TV. At age eight, she was the winner of the prestigious 2010 Achievement and Civic Recognition Award [Cultural] and was recognized for "Outstanding Musical Ability and Contribution" by Markham Mayor.

Notes: For virtuosic and artistic views, Mercedes added challenged bowing*, trills, fingering octaves & moved melodies octave higher in Caprices Nos. 9, 13, 16, 20, 23, 24* and 5*[At the beginning descending scale, G# in Milstein’s edition; in Agitato passage, violinists often use all separate bow to achieve rapid tempo]
