John Toal introduces the first of four programmes performed by BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists, past and present, at Portico - one of Northern Ireland's newest arts and heritage centres. Situated in the heart of Portaferry, on the Upper Ards Peninsula, Portico is a Grade-A listed Greek Revival Temple which opened in 2016, having undergone a £1.5 million restoration. While the building continues to be used by the local Presbyterian congregation, it has now become a resource for the whole community to use.
Today's programme features works by Beethoven and Prokofiev performed by BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists, the Calidore String Quartet and Annelien Van Wauwe. Annelien is accompanied by Pavel Kolesnikov who graduated from the scheme last year.
