The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra and Darrell Ang turn their attention to one of China’s leading composers, Pulitzer Prize-winning Zhou Long, on this Grammy nominated album of world premiere recordings. Long writes consistently compelling music, demonstrated here by The Rhyme of Taigu, which revives the spirit of Chinese court music from the Tang dynasty, drawing on traditional percussion instruments. Symphony "Humen 1839", co-composed with Chen Yi, vividly commemorates the public burning of over 1000 tonnes of opium, an event that was to lead to the First Opium War between Great Britain and China.

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!
