The National Concert Hall in Dublin is presenting the Xuefei Yang Guitar Series - a series of three concerts featuring Xuefei & guest artists associated with the Royal Irish Academy of Music. The series starts on 9th November with a solo recital by Xuefei, and continues 25th January and 26th of April 2018
Xuefei continues her successful collaboration with British tenor Ian Bostridge. Songs from Our Ancestors is the very first release by Globe Music, a new record label from Shakespeare's Globe. The CD received a double five-star review from BBC Music Magazine (Xmas 2016 edition).
Xuefei has arranged three well known Chinese pieces for solo guitar.
Flowing Water, dating from the Ming Dynasty & originally for guqin; and Sword Dance, inspired by a poem from the Tang Dynasty, & originally for liuqin ; Drunken Ecstasy , attributed to the 3rd century scholar Ruan Ji, & originally for guqin
All three pieces feature on the Songs from our Ancestors recording.
Xuefei has a series of four graded repertoire books for children, beginners, intermediate, & advanced players. In addition to the pieces, the books include Xuefei's suggestions for approaching the pieces either from a technical or musical perspective. This video features a section of a piece from the intermediate book. The series is published by Doberman-Yppan.
