"Power and brilliance, enchantment too, from a marvellous young pianist."
- Gramophone

Pianist Yundi (formerly known as Yundi Li) built his reputation on his Chopin interpretations and is such an important exponent of Chopin’s music that he was presented a Gold Medal for Merit to Culture by the Government of Poland in 2010. Five years after his last Chopin recording, Yundi presents The Complete Preludes, one of Chopin's most loved and commercial sets of compositions. This release ties in with the 15th anniversary of Yundi's legendary victory, at the age of only 18, at the International Warsaw Chopin Competition in 2000.

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!
