Britain’s 2017 BBC Radio 3 ‘New Generation Artists’ Announced

The BBC has announced 7 new additions to the ‘BBC New Generation Artists’ roster – including Aleksey Semenenko, the Quatuor Arod and Misha Mullov-Abbado

The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) has announced 7 new additions to the ‘BBC New Generation Artists’ roster – including Ukrainian violinist Aleksey Semenenko, the French-based Quatuor Arod and jazz bassist Misha Mullov-Abbado.

Launched in 1999, as part of the BBC’s commitment to fostering young musical talents, each year a small number of international concert artists, at the beginning of their careers, are invited to join the scheme – offering performance, appearances and recording opportunities with the BBC orchestras, television, radio and festivals.

"We’re very excited about working with the class of 2017 … Radio 3 listeners are in for a treat!” Radio 3 producer Emma Bloxham has said.

“Over the next two years the musicians will have the chance to perform with the BBC’s performing ensembles and make studio recordings for broadcast on Radio 3 …” she has said.

Other new artists to be added to this year’s roster include mezzo-soprano Catriona Morison, pianist Mariam Batsashvili, guitarist Thibaut Garcia and trumpeter Simon Höfele.

Former BBC ‘New Generation Artists’ participants include VC Artists Esther Yoo – and the Danish and Calidore String Quartets.
