The second volume in this series once again vividly reveals the amazing flair that Japanese composers have for the guitar. The programme also explores the ways in which more traditional aspects of the country’s music are brought into the sphere of the classical guitar with variety, subtlety and richness. Veteran guitarist Shin-ichi Fukuda presents this diverse collection of music with its unexpected colours and textures as well as evocations of the biwa and shamisen (types of lute) and the koto, a long zither.

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!
