6.00 pm

Xuefei Yang

 classical guitar

“FROM OPPOSITE SIDES OF THE WORLD”

Music from the Orient and Latin America

Barrios, Sakamoto, Yang, Houghton, Jobim, Piazzolla, Merlin

A most welcome return to Binham from one of the world's finest gutarists.

Fei is one of the few guitarists whose artistry connects with audiences far beyond the guitar fraternity and her international success has led her to be invited to play with the world's leading orchestras.  She is a favourite of the critics, with the The New York Times applauding her for “feisty virtuosity, impeccable technique and sensitive musicianship”.

For this programme featuring music from the Orient and Latin America, Fei writes “In this era we often think of the world as connected. However two continents, Asia and South America are antipodes separated by the vast expanse of the Pacific Ocean. At the limits of safe travel with current technology, there are almost no direct commercial routes between them across the Pacific by sea or air. This concert bridges the geography and technology with music.  This program is very personal for me as oriental music is in my blood, and Latin music is in my heart”.

Tickets (£20, allocated seating, available from 1st May) from:

Wells Maltings Box Office, 01328 710885 (10am-4pm), www.wellsmaltings.org.uk

Saturday, 7 September

7.30 pm

Pavlo Beznosiuk, baroque violin

Paula Chateauneuf, theorbo

VIVA IL VIRTUOSA”, the violin in Italy, 1600-1750, a candlelit concert

 Marini, Pandolfi, Viviani, Lonati, Corelli, Vivaldi, Tartini

Italy, birthplace of the violin, saw an explosion of musical creativity in the 17th century with the invention of opera, cantata and oratorio and the novel forms of sonata and toccata. Inevitably the violin was caught up in these developments and violinist/composers sought to emulate the drama and contrast of these new forms using new techniques and expanding the vocabulary for the instrument. Tonight's programme celebrates this revolution and features the exciting and mercurial music of the foremost exponents of the era and will include solos for the now exotic, then ubiquitous, long-necked lute, the theorbo.

Tickets (£20, allocated seating, available from 1st May) from:

Wells Maltings Box Office, 01328 710885 (10am-4pm), www.wellsmaltings.org.uk
