Each year, Radio 3 selects six or seven remarkable musicians to join the scheme for two years each. During that time they record in the BBC’s studios, perform with the BBC’s orchestras and take part in some of the UK’s leading music festivals. Not surprisingly, the list of alumni reads like a Who's Who of the most exciting musicians of the past two decades. In this series, we can catch those artists near the beginnings of their journeys.
