Clemency Burton-Hill introduces another programme showcasing the talents of Radio 3's starry line-up of New Generation Artists. Now in its 15th year, the New Generation Artists scheme brings listeners the very best of emerging British and international talent. The 'NGAs' are offered many opportunities to perform in chamber concerts and with the BBC orchestras; every day this week we hear the fruits of their work in the studio, in recordings made specially for Radio 3.
