"... powerful playing ... the monstrously difficult cadenza in the Prokofiev seems like child's play in her hands."
- Pianist

“Editor's Choice: a very special talent indeed ... a wonderfully gifted and thoughtful musician, capable of both superb technical artistry and emotional reflection.”
- Gramophone

Yuja Wang brings a fantastic and youthful energy to this 2013 live recording, featuring her spritely, lively and highly focussed rendition of Prokofiev's Op. 16 concerto which displays her deep understanding of the work. Joined by Gustavo Dudamel and the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela, Wang dazzles and delights, combining passion, excitement, intensity and flawless technique.

"I recorded those composers because I feel I’m confident enough now to record them. But Prokofiev, I feel very close to because he’s really naughty and sarcastic with all those really edgy, saucy colours."
- Yuja Wang

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!
