Sir James Galway Description
The British living flute legend Sir James Galway OBE teams up with the extraordinarily talented UK-based Chinese guitarist Xuefei Yang for this charming programme in the UK Now calendar.
Xuefei Yang is one of Classic FM Magazine’s 100 Best Artists and one of a handful who has been signed onto an international record label.
This is a unique chance to see two major musicians performing together in Beijing in an equally unique setting.
UK Now is the largest festival of British arts and creative industries ever held in China. Between April and November 2012 it is bringing hundreds of events to at least 17 cities across China.
