BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists scheme, in partnership with the Royal Philharmonic Society, was launched in 1999 as part of the BBC’s commitment to young musical talent. Now, in its 18th year, the scheme is still going strong and has produced scores of young soloists and ensembles that are now part of the fabric of the musical culture here in the UK and across the world.
This weekend offers a series of showcase recitals for four of the current batch of New Generation Artists, including trombonist, Peter Moore; mezzo-soprano, Kathryn Rudge; the Armida Quartet; and clarinetist, Mark Simpson who performs tonight with Richard Uttley. The programme features the Lines and Spaces, by Naomi Pinnock, a piece commissioned by RPS in 2015.
