XUEFEI YANG Recital - Friday 12th April 2019 at 19.30
Xeufei Yang's web site
Swansea Classical Guitar Circle is so delighted to be able to play host to one of the world's
greatest classical guitarists - Xuefei Yang
Born in Beijing, Xuefei Yang was the first Chinese classical guitarist to enter a music school in her country.
Later, John Williams presented her with two guitars after hearing her play, to help her and fellow students at the Beijing Conservatoire.
Since 2000 she has been based in England and has become a favourite of the critics, with The New York Times applauding her for ‘feisty virtuosity, impeccable technique and sensitive musicianship’.
Among the music she has helped to add to the repertoire are Chinese works by composers such as Chen Yi.
The latest of Xuefei's many honours was to be awarded, in June 2018,
an Honorary Fellowship
of the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire.
The award was presented by the Principal of Royal Birmingham Conservatoire,
Professor Julian Lloyd Webber,
after a touching speech made by Head of Guitar, Mark Ashford
Below you will find a link to a fascinating interview [in ENGLISH and with much music!]
that was made by Chinese Television - when Xuefei was back in her home city of Beijing to
give a recital there.
There many links also to performances by Xuefei of a wide range of music.
