Couperin, Duparc, Franck, Debussy and Dukas

Music from Radio 3 New Generation Artists. With Pavel Kolesnikov (piano) playing Couperin and Debussy, Fatma Said (soprano) in Duparc and Andrei Ionita (cello) in Franck.

Clemency Burton-Hill celebrates the music making of the BBC New Generation Artists. Here is the chance to hear a starry line-up of young musicians caught by the BBC microphones when they are on the brink of glittering international careers. In today's programme, there's a French focus as Pavel Kolesnikov brings his exquisite pianistic touch and enquiring mind to music by Louis Couperin and Debussy, Fatma Said sings some of Duparc's ravishing songs and twenty-two year old Andrei Ionita, winner of the 2015 Tchaikovsky Competition, makes his debut in the BBC studios with Cesar Franck's romantically charged Cello Sonata.
