Radio 3's New Generation Artists

Radio 3 New Generation Artists broadcast assistant Philip O'Meara flags up the latest artist videos ...

The internet is a vast place. But where to go to see videos of performances and interviews by the members of Radio 3’s illustrious New Generation Artists scheme (I hear you ask)? Well, beginning with the artists of 2007-2009, the good people of the Radio 3 Interactive department began creating short videos to introduce these dazzling artists to you, the online aficionado. Perhaps these videos will one day appear on a future TV series: 'Before They Were Even More Famous'. Artists include Liz Watts (2007-2009), an ever-growing name in the soprano world; Benjamin Grosvenor - a young pianist whose appearance as the youngest ever soloist at the Proms last year has helped to shoot him back into the national musical limelight; and the latest video appearance by a new recruit to the NGA scheme – Russian/German pianist Igor Levit, with some surprisingly down-to-earth insight into the day-to-day life of a professional pianist, interspersed with Tchaikovsky, no less.

  • To explore the wealth of videos visit the New Generation Artists playlist on the Radio 3 YouTube Channel.
