Cheltenham Music Festival 2012; Philip Langridge Mentoring Scheme Showcase
Live from the Pittville Pump Room
Presented by Martin Handley
Cheltenham Music Festival 2012: The Philip Langridge Mentoring Scheme Showcase brings together some of the UK's finest young artists to perform a varied programme of vocal and instrumental music by Schubert, Mahler, Chopin and Britten.
Tonight's concert, the first of two from the 2012 Cheltenham Music Festival, is the debut public recital given by young artists invited to take part in the mentoring scheme. Established by the Royal Philharmonic Society and Young Classical Artists Trust in memory of the great British tenor Philip Langridge, the scheme pairs young performers with leading musicians, such as Steven Isserlis and Imogen Cooper.
