Xuefei Yang plays Shuo Chang by Chen Yi

Xuefei YangChinese guitarist Xuefei Yang plays Shuo Chang by Chen Yi at the Boston Guitarfest 2015. This comes via their YouTube where the vids are getting pumped out in some massive quantities. This is an awesome piece. Chen Yi (b.1953) is a Chinese violinist and composer as well as first Chinese woman to receive a Master of Arts (M.A.) in music composition from the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing. Yi was a finalist for the 2006 Pulitzer Prize. She now teaches in the US. I’m assuming Xuefei Yang needs no introduction.

Sheet Music via Amazon: Shuo Chang for Solo Guitar, Here’s the blurb: “Internationally celebrated composer Chen Yi is famously admired for her inventive instrumental textures, often inspired by the cross-breeding of Chinese and Western instruments and sonorities. While plucked Chinese instruments (such as Pipa) have appeared in or inspired many of her works, Shuo Chang is the first Chen Yi composition for solo Guitar automatically marking a significant and captivating contribution to the instruments repertoire.”
