Notes & Reviews:

Internationally acclaimed classical guitarist Xuefei Yang turns her considerable talents and unique style to baroque music for the first time in her recording career. Bach's music has long been championed by guitarists, and this collection of new arrangements of some of his most popular repertoire is perfect for strong radio rotation. This exciting and innovative album in which she has transcribed for the guitar some of Bach's familiar violin concertos and other works showcases why Xuefei Yang is truly a talented artist. Accompanying Fei on this release is the Elias String Quartet.

Gramophone Magazine
The composer's own lute transcriptions are her models and she finds ingenious means to overcome the problems introduced when recasting, say, a bowed violin line for the plucked guitar...While the challenges of adapting the concertos for guitar may not have been entirely surmounted, it would be worthwhile to hear Xuefei Yang in more solo music by Bach.

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
He's done the work for you creating perfect music, and all you need to do is play with a full and joyous heart and a well mastered technique. Yang delivers all one could ask for.
