Clemency Burton-Hill continues a two week series showcasing the BBC Radio 3 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 international music scene are invited to join. Opportunities include concerts in London and around the UK, appearances and recordings with the BBC Orchestras, special studio recordings for Radio 3, and, for some, appearances at the Proms.
Music for New Year's Day includes Walton's nod towards Elizabethan lute songs, performed by Robin Tritschler and Sean Shibe; Leonard Elschenbroich playing Saint-Saens Cello Concerto No. 1, written when French musicians were falling under the spell of Franz Liszt; and to end music by jazz saxophonist, Trish Clowes; as well as songs from the shows when mezzo-soprano Kitty Whately joins the BBC Concert Orchestra and Barry Wordsworth for music by Richard Rodgers, Jerome Kern and Cole Porter.
