Description

Following the cultural revolution, Beijing-born Xuefei Yang made international history as the first guitarist ever admitted to a music school in China. Her pioneering spirit, courage and prodigious talent brought her quickly to the attention of the music world at large. The composer Joaquín Rodrigo attended her debut in Madrid and could not believe she was just 14. Fellow guitar virtuoso John Williams sought her out when he toured Beijing while she was still a student. Her spellbinding performances are not to be missed.
