Xuefei's latest CD for EMI Classics is now available in record shops & online. It is available on CD or via download.
"Bach Concertos" is Xuefei's most innovative and exciting recording to date. It features her own transcriptions of three Bach concertos, plus some of his solo works.
For the concertos, Xuefei is joined by one of the most exciting and dynamic string quartets, the Elias Quartet.
The three concertos are his two violin concertos, plus the harpischord concerto in D-minor, which is believed to be based on a lost violin concerto.
The solo pieces are Bach's first Violin Sonata; Prelude from the Well-Tempered Clavier; and Air on The G String, which Xuefei recorded on a seven-string guitar!
Xuefei used three different instruments for this recording - her Australian Greg Smallman instrument, a spruce top instrument by German luthier Karl-Heinz Roemmich, and a seven string instrument by British luthier, Paul Fischer.
Xuefei is hoping that the arrangements will be welcome additions to the baroque concerto repertoire for her instrument. The three videos here include the promotional video; the first movement of the A minor violin concerto; a shorter version of the promotional video. Enjoy !
