Shostakovich: Cello Concerto No.1, Cello Sonata

“Chang brings clear-sighted belief to everything she touches. Her range is generous indeed, from barely-audible ghostly voices to high-octane drama… What wins me over without reservation is the superlative partnership with Pappano and the LSO on peak form. ...Pappano doubles as Chang's partner in the accompanying Sonata, taking on the fiendish quick-change artistry of the piano role with deadpan aplomb.” --BBC Music Magazine, May 2006 *****

“Adopting in fast music speeds a notch swifter than the norm, Chang combines raw emotion with a structural grip that, in its way, is even more remarkable in one so young. …the LSO is right there with her, as deeply attentive in the slow movement as in the composer's astringent, nagging brand of fireworks elsewhere in the piece.” --Gramophone Magazine, May 2006
