Louis Schwizgebel, Esther Yoo, Van Kuijk Quartet, Lise Berthaud

With Louis Schwizgebel (piano) in Debussy, Olena Tokar (soprano) in Ravel, Esther Yoo (violin) in Saint-Saens, Van Kuijk Quartet in Debussy and Lise Berthaud (viola) in Ravel.

Clemency Burton-Hill celebrates the music making of the BBC New Generation Artists. Today's programme focuses on French repertoire from the fin de siècle to the present day. The Van Kuijk Quartet, recent winners of the Wigmore Hall International Quartet Competition, and newly-signed BBC NGAs bring a suitably Gallic touch to the sensual, impressionistic world of Debussy's Quartet of 1893, a work which changed chamber music for ever.
