Digital Booklet
"Five Stars ... keen, speculative intelligence is evident in many aspects of her playing, complemented by a fairly staggering technique ... one of the most stimulating recitals I've heard this year." - BBC Music Magazine "... (Wang) plays with extraordinary power. More to the point, she approaches repertory staples with original, illuminating ideas. Her sharp articulation and the deftness with which she moves between thunder and sparkle yield vivid performances ..." - The New York Times "... Wang plays with a rare, frankly exquisite combination of feeling and delicacy ... she has a dazzling way of lightening even the heaviest textures so that her entire performance gleams with an astonishing brilliance and verve ... this entire recital leaves you in no doubt that at 23 Yuja Wang is already among the most brilliantly gifted of today's pianists." - Gramophone "Yuja Wang transforms virtuoso standards ... scintillating ... marks her as one of the most exciting young performers today ... the sound is as if we’ve been given a seat right in front of the piano ... Wang is reminiscent of the incendiary Martha Argerich. There is abundant virtuosity on display but it never comes over as flamboyancy. There is zest here, but with close attention to the quietest details." - Limelight Critics could barely find enough superlatives to praise this 2010 recital album from pianist Yuja Wang, recorded when she was in her early 20s. For her sophomore release, Wang carefully selected and constructed the solo programme featuring Brahms, Ravel, Scarlatti and Stravinsky.

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!
