2)Guitar / Xuefei Yang
Born in Beijing, now based in the UK, Xuefei Yang is acclaimed as one of the world’s finest classical guitarists. She was the first ever guitarist in China to enter a music school, and became the first to launch an international professional career.
Her first public appearance at the age of ten, at the China International Guitar Festival, received such acclaim that the Spanish Ambassador in China immediately presented her with a concert guitar. The composer Rodrigo attended her debut concert in Madrid when she was fourteen. In 1995, impressed with her playing, John Williams gave two of his own Smallman guitars to her Conservatory especially for Xuefei and other top students to play.
Xuefei received her DipRAM from Royal Academy of Music in London, and was also honored with the Principal’s Prize.
As a professional musician, Xuefei has performed concerts in 40 countries throughout the UK, Europe, Asia and North America.
The demand for her music sees Xuefei keeping a busy international schedule including London’s major venues (with several sell-out recitals at London’s Wigmore Hall), and concerts at the world’s most prestigious venues including Philharmonie Berlin, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Konzerthaus Vienna, Laeiszhalle Hamburg, National Auditorium Madrid, Dvorak Hall Prague, Carnegie Hall & Lincoln Center New York, plus the main venues across Asia. Xuefei gave both the first solo guitar, and first guitar concerto, recitals ever in Beijing’s National Centre of Performing Arts.
In 2003 she performed 54 concerts for the “Night of the Proms” Tour, appearing in Belgium, The Netherlands and Germany, to a total audience of over 800,000 people.
Xuefei is regularly invited to perform concertos with leading orchestras, including New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, Detroit Symphony, Barcelona Symphony, the Hallé Orchestra, China National Philharmonic and Guangzhou Symphony Orchestra.
In addition to her solo career, Xuefei regularly appears in collaborations with other musicians. This season sees her performing chamber music with the Elias String Quartet, giving duo recitals with cellist Jian Wang, collaborating with tenor Ian Bostridge in a recital at London’s Wigmore Hall, and with flautist Sir James Galway at the Beijing Music Festival.
