Combing traditional and contemporary idioms from Chinese and Western countries in his own unique way, Chinese-American composer Bright Sheng's pieces are vibrant and rich. Featuring the composer himself on piano, this release is a glorious mix of influences, from the Scandinavian folk music that inspired Northern Lights, to the poetry of Li Qing Zhao that sparked Melodies of a Flute, and the local flavours of Sichuan province which give Hot Pepper it's title.

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!
