## Abstract

We construct an embedding of two commuting copies of the N = 2 superconformal vertex algebra in the space of global sections of the twisted chiral-anti-chiral de Rham complex of a generalized Calabi-Yau metric manifold, including the case when there is a non-trivial H-flux and non-vanishing dilaton. The 4 corresponding BRST charges are well defined on any generalized Kähler manifold. This allows one to consider the half-twisted model defining thus the chiral de Rham complex of a generalized Kähler manifold. The classical limit of this result allows one to recover the celebrated generalized Kähler identities as the degree zero part of an infinite dimensional Lie superalgebra attached to any generalized Kähler manifold. As a byproduct of our study we investigate the properties of generalized Calabi-Yau metric manifolds in the Lie algebroid setting.
