"... (Wang) has technique to burn and it’s entirely appropriate that she plays all of this music with a youthful energy well-suited to her years ... unquestionably a fine release ..."
- ClassicsToday.com

"Four Stars ... virtuosic pianist Yuja Wang is back, bringing her signature vibrancy and colour to Ravel's two piano concertos ... much to excite in this thrilling partnership between soloist and orchestra."
- Sinfini Music

"Editor's Choice ... the outer movements are so deliciously light, like the most perfect soufflé, executed with disarming insouciance by pianist and orchestra alike ... you could not wish for a more atmospheric account of this concerto nor a more thrilling one ..."
- Gramophone

Star pianist Yuja Wang and the Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich under Lionel Bringuier devote this album to two major orchestral works by Ravel: the Piano Concerto In G Major and the Piano Concerto for the Left Hand, both heavily influenced by the jazz music Ravel encountered during a US concert tour in 1928. Fauré's Ballade Op. 19 completes the programme, presented here in its original version for solo piano.

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!
