Digital Booklet
Grammy Award Nomination, 2024 – Producer Of The Year, Classical David Frost The American Project (Yuja Wang, Teddy Abrams, Louisville Orchestra) (A) Grammy Award WINNER, 2024 – Best Classical Instrumental Solo The American Project Yuja Wang; Teddy Abrams, conductor (Louisville Orchestra) Yuja Wang shines as soloist in the world premiere recording of a new piano concerto written especially for her by her friend Teddy Abrams. The extremely versatile Abrams - pianist, clarinetist, composer and music director of the Louisville Orchestra - and the star pianist became friends in their student days. Originally conceived as a short companion composition to Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue," Abrams' Piano Concerto evolved into a showpiece in its own right. The work celebrates the richness of American musical culture and the sheer depth and breadth of Yuja Wang's virtuosity. "I see this concerto as an opportunity for the piano to take us through what I think is one of the strengths of American culture: its plurality, its interconnectedness," Abrams explains. The concerto is divided into eleven sections, including a swing-style big band overture, three solo cadenzas, and Latin jazz-inspired "solos" and passages reminiscent of boogie-woogie, American gospel songs, or Broadway showstoppers. Also included on the album is the improvisational "You Come Here Often?" created for Yuja Wang by another close friend, Michael Tilson Thomas. The piece evolves from a simple rhythmic riff into a jazz fusion number with thoughtful episodes and a rocking finale. Both works were recorded with the Louisville Orchestra, conducted by Abrams.

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!
