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 fifth of ten early-evening programmes over the Christmas period, both new and departing members of the scheme perform piano and vocal music. Pianists Christian Ihle Hadland and Igor Levit perform Mozart's Sonata in D Major K311 and Liszt's 'Dante' sonata respectively, and fellow new recruit mezzo-soprano Jennifer Johnston sings four songs by Richard Strauss. Dutch baritone Henk Neven recently completed the New Generation Artists scheme; he appears in six songs by Schumann. Fellow graduate Georgian pianist Khatia Buniatishvili plays Brahms' Intermezzo op. 118 no. 2.
