For a series of studio and concert performances by members of Radio 3's New Generation Artists scheme, Ben Johnson (tenor) and James Baillieu (piano) play Schumann's Liederkreis.

In 1840 Robert Schumann married his beloved Clara Wieck, and in the same year composed an extraordinary number of songs, including the cycle Liederkreis, op. 24. Tonight's programme features a recording by British tenor and New Generation Artist Ben Johnson, made specially for Radio 3 earlier this year with pianist James Baillieu.
