"... the music is very enjoyable ... it’s in a predominantly Western mode rather than the East-meets-West that I had expected. Er Huang, for example, may be based on Chinese themes but it sounds more like Ravel in his quieter mood ... Enchantements oubliés is equally beautiful, often dreamily so, but the beauty is combined with a full-size orchestra sometimes in a more impassioned mood." - MusicWeb International The Taiwan Philharmonic devotes this album of world premieres to prominent Chinese composer Qigang Chen, whose music has been performed by leading orchestras around the world. Er Huang, commissioned by Carnegie Hall, is based on a number of melodies from Peking operas, nostalgically recollected, while the unusual structure of Enchantements oubliés explores a journey into the essence of beauty. Un temps disparu, based on an ancient Chinese melody, features the erhu, a two-stringed Chinese fiddle.

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!
