Robin Tritschler (tenor) and Christopher Glynn (piano) in a range of American Song. Plus Pavel Kolesnikov (piano) in Shostakovich and Calidore Quartet in music by Caroline Shaw.

John Toal introduces the third 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 includes works by Shostakovich, the contemporary American composer Caroline Shaw, and a range of American song. They are performed by BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists the Calidore String Quartet, and scheme graduates tenor Robin Tritschler and pianist Pavel Kolesnikov.
