The film takes in both Fischer, the guitarist Xuefei Yang who agreed to try out the new guitar and composer William Lovelady who was commissioned to write a piece for Xuefei Yangto play on Fischer's new guitar. Aubade will be premiered at Chipping Norton Theatre on 12 February 2014. There is a preview video for Aubade after the break.
