Xuefei Yang is acclaimed as one of the world’s finest classical guitarists. Born in Beijing, she became the first internationally recognised Chinese guitarist on the world stage. She is now based in the UK and her international success has led her to be invited to play in more than 50 countries at numerous pretigious venues, and is frequently invited to play with the world’s leading orchestras. She is one of the few guitarists whose artistry connects with audiences far beyond the guitar fraternity.
Xuefei made the list of top 6 classical guitarists in BBC Music Magazine, and is one of three classical guitarists to make the top 50 women guitarists in Guitar Player magazine.
