EDITORS’ NOTES

Chinese guitarist Xuefei Yang combines an astonishing technique with a rare musical instinct. One Day in November, recorded exclusively for Apple Music at Platoon Studio in London, features a selection of enchanting works that bring out every aspect of her artistry. Arrangements of Satie and Debussy piano works focus in on Yang’s delicate finger-work, while the sunny Granados “Zapateado” shines a light on her rhythmic panache. Meanwhile, Yang’s deep, sonorous tone is perfect for de Falla’s soulful tribute to Debussy. There are also a couple of less familiar but equally beautiful tracks: “Un dia de noviembre”  by Cuban composer Leo Brouwer is reminiscent of Ennio Morricone, while John Brunning’s exquisite “Romance No. 3” is recorded here for the first time.
