"Which side are you on?" asks Conrad Tao on his album American Rage.

When the pianist Conrad Tao presents a new album, one can rely on one thing: The program has nothing to do with the usual recital sequences. Tao, who has also appeared as a composer and won the ASCAP Morton Gould Young Composer Award eight times in a row, creates concept albums that illuminate topics in a complex manner, with Tao putting his finger in so many wounds.

American Rage - a musical exploration of the American left features compositions by Frederic Rzewski, Julia Wolfe and Aaron Copland. As a concert performance, the program won the award as one of New York Times' Best Performances of 2017.

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!
