Clemency Burton-Hill presents the first in a new series showcasing the talents of the BBC's New Generation Artists.

As part of the BBC's commitment to developing and nurturing young talent, BBC Radio 3 launched its New Generation Artists scheme in the autumn of 1999. Now well into its second decade, the scheme has acquired the reputation of being a world leader for young artists. Every autumn six to seven artists or groups who are beginning to make a mark on the national and international music scene are invited to join the scheme, which offers them unique opportunities to develop their considerable talents. These include concerts in London and around the UK, appearances and recordings with the BBC Orchestras, special studio recordings for Radio 3, and, last but not least, appearances at the Proms.

Today the spotlight falls on four artists, all of whom are appearing at the Proms this year: pianists Zhang Zuo and Louis Schwizgebel, mezzo-soprano Kitty Whately, and viola player Lise Berthaud.
