Jennifer Johnston (mezzo) in Purcell: Music for a While. Francesco Piemontesi (piano) in Mozart: Fantasy, K397. Clara Mouriz (mezzo) in Montsalvatge. Plus Schubert and Liszt.

The Radio 3 New Generation Artists scheme exists to provide support and opportunities to some of the brightest talents in the world of classical music, and in the ten years of its existence has numbered artists such as the Belcea String Quartet, Paul Lewis, Janine Jansen, Natalie Clein and Alice Coote among its distinguished members.

In the third of ten early-evening programmes over the Christmas period, three new artists appear with performances from their first New Generation Artists studio recording sessions. Songs by Montsalvatge from Spanish mezzo-soprano Clara Mouriz, fellow mezzo Jennifer Johnston with Purcell's Music for a While and Igor Levit with Schubert's Moments Musicaux and Liszt's Il Penseroso. They are joined by two artists who have recently graduate from the scheme: Francesco Piemontesi performs Mozart's Fantasy K397 and the Elias Quartet in a contemporary work by Ivan Moseley - his Quadrants for string quartet.
