WITH XUEFEI YANG, RIVERSIDE GUITAR ENSEMBLE AND ADELAIDE GUITAR FESTIVAL ORCHESTRA
A complete celebration of the classical guitar featuring international sensation Xuefei Yang, Riverside Guitar Ensemble, and Adelaide Guitar Festival Orchestra.
Xuefei Yang is acclaimed as one of the world’s finest classical guitarists, praised by Gramophone magazine as one of the leading innovators of her generation. Hailed as a musical pioneer, Fei was the first-ever guitarist in China to enter a music school and became the first internationally recognised Chinese guitarist on the world stage.
Riverside Guitar Ensemble, directed by Karin Schaupp, brings together Queensland’s finest young professional guitarists and students at the Queensland Conservatorium. The ensemble has recorded and collaborated with international artists, and continues to premiere and commission new works, including a new work to be premiered at the Adelaide Guitar Festival, written by acclaimed Australian composer Gerard Brophy.
Starting off this concert will be the Adelaide Guitar Festival Orchestra, comprised of our 2022 Guitar Festival Winter School students.
Presented by Adelaide Festival Centre.
