"She projects the rolling passagework and multi-layered textures of the Rachmaninov's first movement with plenty of power and sweep..." - Gramophone Pianist Sa Chen appears alongside the Gulbenkian Orchestra under the direction of Lawrence Foster for this performance of the Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 2. in C Minor, Op. 18. Over the past decade, Chen Sa has established herself as one of the most charismatic pianists of her generation.

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!
