"Editor's Choice."
- Gramophone

"... vivid and flattering sound ... if you're in the market for this piece, I'd go with the Naxos."
- American Record Guide

"... combines certain 'authentic-sounding' Chinese motifs and timbres within the tone world of 20th century Western music in a way that is often captivating and exciting ... while Sheng's Western influences abound in these works, few listeners will be disappointed by the effort exhibited by all the parties involved."
- ClassicsToday.com

The Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra evokes the spirit of China and celebrates its landscape, its culture and its history on this highly acclaimed collection of works by Bright Sheng, recorded in 2002.

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!
