On this album of world premieres, the Taiwan Philharmonic presents Symphony No. 3 ‘Taiwan’ by leading Taiwanese composer Gordon Chin. Featuring an array of exotic Chinese percussion instruments, the symphony is a dramatically powerful work cast in three movements which explore Chin's native country’s turbulent history. The three movement Cello Concerto No. 1, also on this programme, contans specific literary quotations from Shakespeare, Blaise Pascal and Samuel Johnson that elucidate the expressive moods of the piece.

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!
