This digital-only release features the Shanghai Quartet on works by Bright Sheng, one of today’s most widely performed composers. Joined by violinist Weigang Li, pianist Peter Serkin and the composer himself on piano, the album includes the landmark title work, derived from an instrumental interlude of the well known Peking opera Farewell My Concubine. My Song was inspired both by Sheng's love of Chinese folk music and by the musicality and virtuosity of pianist Serkin, the work’s dedicatee.

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!
