"Four Stars ... the BBC Philharmonic and Juanjo Mena heroically navigate the complex textures and intense atmospheres with both finesse and aplomb. Xiayin Wang rises to the Piano Concerto’s challenges, bringing to it a fulsome tone plus meticulous detail ..."
- BBC Music Magazine

"... music that packs a punch ... Wang, Mena and the forces of the BBC Philharmonic come through brilliantly. Especially commendable is Chandos’s recording quality, which expands to contain even the most violent upsurge from the orchestral palette and yet is detailed enough to reflect every deft colouristic element."
- MusicWeb International

"... Xiayin Wang is jaw-droppingly impressive. She makes music out of even the most jagged phrases and the BBC Philharmonic outclasses all of the recorded competition in both finesse and commitment. I’d always thought of this work as inferior to the more popular First Concerto; this recording has made me seriously reconsider that opinion."
- Gramophone

This is the second in a three volume series of Juanjo Mena’s idiomatic exploration of Ginastera’s orchestral music with the BBC Philharmonic, started in January 2016 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of the great Argentinian composer. The album features a late work, lesser known yet rich in surprises, the Second Piano Concerto, a showcase for the keen musicality and sweeping virtuosity of pianist Xiayin Wang and the sumptuous sound of the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra. The concerto is coupled with the exotic early ballet Panambí, complete with an appearance at the end from the Manchester Chamber Choir.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
