Biography

With successes such as winning BBC Young Composer of the Year, and performing at venues such as the Purcell Room and King’s Place, Catherine Cheung has established herself as both a pianist and a composer.

Having recently graduated with a Masters degree in Performance from the Royal College of Music, London, Catherine continues to work with Gordon Fergus-Thompson.

Catherine was a finalist in the ‘2nd International Franz Liszt Competition for Young Pianists’. She has performed at venues including St. Lawrence Jewry (Guildhall, London), Steinway Hall (London), Purcell Room (Southbank Centre), Louis Vuitton Maison (Bond Street) and in 2011, took part in the Lang Lang Inspire scheme performing at the Royal Festival Hall. She also performed as a soloist at the State Apartments at St. James's Palace for the Elgar Foundation, in the presence of HRH The Prince of Wales, and has also had the pleasure of performing in countries such as New Zealand, and most recently Switzerland for the Cully Classique Festival. Catherine has worked with eminent pianists including Vanessa Latarche, Peter Nagy, Dimitri Alexeev and Rita Wagner at the prestigious International Musicians Seminar at Prussia Cove.

Catherine has also had several successes with her compositions. In 2010, Catherine won the Purcell School Composition Competition, with the premiere of her orchestral piece ‘Fragmented Expanse’, performed by the Purcell School Symphony Orchestra at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Southbank Centre. ‘Fragmented Expanse’ was then chosen as a winning entry for the BBC Young Composers’ Competition 2010, leading to a commission by BBC Inspire and MFY, and a Radio 3 broadcast of 'Fragmented Expanse'. In 2011, this commission, 'Alter Ego', was performed in an MFY Prom and 'Fragmented Expanse' was recorded by the BBC Symphony Orchestra with Nicholas Collon conducting. Catherine's saxophone quartet 'Suspend/Coruscate' was shortlisted at the Herne Hill Music Festival Composition Competition 2012, and was consequently chosen as the winning work. There have also been numerous collaborations with artists including Zachary Eastwood-Bloom, and most recently Azadeh Fatehrad.
