Apollon Musagete Quartet, Trish Clowes, Louis Schwizgebel

Clemency Burton-Hill presents recent recordings made by Radio 3 New Generation Artists: the Apollon Musagete Quartet, jazz saxophonist Trish Clowes and pianist Louis Schwizgebel.

Clemency Burton-Hill presents another programme in this summer 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.

Tonight, a chance to hear from the Apollon Musagete Quartet, jazz saxophonist Trish Clowes, and pianist Louis Schwizgebel.
