"It's true, the 'devil' still has the same tricks. But what a devil! And what tricks!" - Los Angeles Times The world premiere of John Adams' Must the Devil Have All the Good Tunes? with the GRAMMY-winning Los Angeles Philharmonic under Gustavo Dudamel and the star pianist Yuja Wang appears on Deutsche Grammophon. "Must the Devil Have All the Good Tunes?" is the latest piano work by the American composer John Adams. It continues its provocative exploration of the instrument, which was also heard in “Grand Pianola Music” (1983) and “Hallelujah Junction” (2001). The commissioned work of the Los Angeles Philharmonic was written by Adams for pianist Yuja Wang and premiered in March 2019 in the Walt Disney Concert Hall. The orchestra, its musical and artistic director Gustavo Dudamel, and Yuja Wang returned to this legendary concert hall in November to play it live, a "wonderfully irritating concert," The New York Times said, "it is" disturbingly fascinating ".

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!
