Beijing Guitar Duo

Praised by the distinguished Classical Guitar Magazine as “having the star potential to serve as inspiration for new generations of guitarists to come,” Beijing Guitar Duo made their New York debut in Carnegie Hall in 2010. Immediately after the concert, they were signed by Bill Capone of Arts Management Group in New York, and launched their international concert career.

Composed of guitarist Meng Su and Yameng Wang, Beijing Guitar Duo has performed around the world in halls such as Concertgebouw, Palau de Musica, Tchaikovsky Hall and the National Theatre in Beijing. Beijing Guitar Duo’s performances and recordings have impressed the public with “an ability and artistry that exceeds their years.” Their debut CD Maracaípe, received a Latin GRAMMY nomination for the titled piece, which was dedicated to them by renowned guitarist/composer Sergio Assad. Meng Su and Yameng Wang were born in the coastal city of Qingdao, China. They each came to the partnership with exceptional credentials, including a string of competition awards.
