Xuefei Yang is acclaimed as one of the world's finest classical guitarists. Hailed as a musical pioneer - her journey began after the Cultural Revolution, a period where Western musical instruments & music were banned. Xuefei was the first-ever guitarist in China to enter a music school, & became the first internationally recognised Chinese guitarist on the world stage.
Her international success has led her to be invited to play in more than 50 countries at numerous prestigious venues, and is frequently invited to play with the world's leading orchestras, and collaborate with artists such as Ian Bostridge, Rosalind Plowright, Sir James Galway. Gramophone magazine praised Xuefei as one of the leading innovators of her generation for continuing to build the guitar repertoire. She is a commissioner of new works for the guitar, EMI recording artist and popular visiting lecturer.
