Debussy, Mozart and Glazunov

Clemency Burton-Hill celebrates the music making of the BBC New Generation Artists. Each Saturday lunchtime over the summer, there's a chance to hear a starry line-up of young musicians caught by the BBC microphones as they embark on their international careers. In advance of their BBC Proms performance on Monday, the Armida Quartet play one of Mozart's 'Prussian' quartets and Beatrice Rana dazzles in Debussy's Pour le Piano, a work influenced both by the sound of the Javanese Gamelan and the music of what Debussy called 'the ancient style.
