Clemency Burton-Hill celebrates the music making of the current BBC New Generation Artists. Over the Proms season, there's a chance to hear a starry line-up of young musicians caught by the BBC microphones as they embark on glittering international careers. In this first of seven Saturday mid-day programmes we hear from three NGAs who will be appearing at the Proms in the next few weeks: the Van Kuijk Quartet from France demonstrate their fresh-minted Mozart, the Italian pianist, Beatrice Rana gives us a taster of the dazzling Bach playing which has won her numerous international plaudits and the British bass-baritone brings his dramatic gifts to songs by Saint-Saens.
