Guitarist Xuefei Yang will join the New Zealand
Symphony Orchestra to perform one of classical
music’s greatest hits – the 20th century Spanish
classic Concierto de Aranjuez – during the NZSO
Sketches of Spain tour, coming to Napier on
The first guitarist ever to enter a music school
in her native China, Yang is also the first Chinese
guitar virtuoso to launch an international career.
Gramophone magazine named Yang the guitar
world’s newest star, acclaimed for her ‘‘frighten-
ing’’ technical brilliance as well as the gentleness
of her finger work.
The Concierto de Aranjuez has become Yang’s
international calling card after she mastered it
aged just 16. It was the first orchestral work writ-
ten for the guitar and it shot composer Joaquin
Rodrigo to fame when it premiered in 1939.
Inspired by the palace gardens at Aranjuez near
Madrid, it evokes birdsong, fragrant flowers and
the play of fountains.
Sketches of Spain also features Debussy’s Iberia
and Three Dances from the Spanish ballet The
Three Cornered Hat.
The concerts will be led by an impressive young
German conductor Christoph Konig, known for the
energy and zest of his performances.
Principal conductor of Portugal’s Orquestra
Sinfonica do Porto Casa da Musica, this is his
debut tour with the NZSO.
Xuefei Yang will sign copies of her album
Rodrigo: Concierto de Aranjuez at each concert
❚ Sketches of Spain, Napier Municipal Theatre,
Tuesday, August 30, 7.30pm.
