“Feisty virtuosity, impeccable technique and sensitive musicianship”
New York Times
“Her lyrical playing, warm sound and charismatic artistry connect with audiences far beyond the guitar fraternity.”
Classic FM Magazine
Star guitarist Xuefei Yang returns to Hong Kong with a colourful and virtuosic programme of Chinese, Spanish and Latin guitar repertoire.
Selected as one of Classic FM’s “100 Best Artists of Our Time” and BBC Music Magazine‘s “Six of the best classical guitarists”, Xuefei Yang is the first internationally recognised Chinese guitarist on the world stage. The acclaimed guitarist has made appearances in over 50 countries at numerous prestigious venues including Wigmore Hall (London), Philharmonie (Berlin), Concertgebouw (Amsterdam), Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Centre (New York City).
Gramophone magazine praised Xuefei as “one of the leading innovators of her generation for continuing to build the guitar repertoire”. For her Hong Kong recital, in addition to her signature Spanish and Latin guitar repertoire, Xuefei also pays homage to her homeland with her own beautiful arrangements of traditional Chinese melodies lesser known to the Western guitar community. She brings a fresh perspective to Chinese music, as well as opening a door to new repertoire for the guitar.
Find out why The Strad Magazine comments “Xuefei Yang proved to be a most impressive advocate for her instrument.”
