British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor has been a Radio 3 New Generation Artist since 2010. He hit the headlines as an 11 year old in 2004, winning the keyboard final of the BBC Young Musician of the Year. In this programme he joins Clemency Burton-Hill to present an all-Chopin collection of some of his recording work with the New Generation Artists Scheme. Founded in 1999, the Radio 3 NGA scheme exists as part of the BBC's commitment to nurturing young talent and has already acquired the reputation of being a world leader for young artists.
