These works are all among the major solo piano works of Robert Schumann. Pianist Shang Cai has performed widely, beginning with his debut with the Toronto Symphony at the age of fifteen. He loves this music, and it clearly shows.

Twenty-eight year old award-winning pianist, Sheng Cai has embraced the keyboard tradition which epitomizes the greatness of the romantic virtuoso. His performances have touched audiences and won the praise of critics on three continents. Of his Chopin 1st piano Concerto the Toronto Star headlined: "Young pianist impresses at debut" and continued "a young man with real talent... from a clear, singing tone to a subtle sense of rubato to a judicious choice of tempi... some of the same quantities embodied in Pollini's approach". Honored with a number of prizes and awards, Sheng Cai has been described as a pianist" with great confidence... gave more lucidity, color and power" by the Birmingham News.

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!
