  Xuefei Yang 20 January 2005  
China's celebrated guitarist

At 27 Xuefei Yang has already been described as one of the best guitarists in the world. John Williams was so impressed by her playing he gave her one of his own guitars.

But what makes her even more unusual is the fact that she comes from China, where until recently those who play the guitar have not been taken as seriously as say, pianists or violinists.

Xuefei Yang explains why she thinks the instrument chose her rather than the other way around.
