Gen­er­a­tion names re­vealed

BBC Music Magazine - - THE FULL SCORE -

Ra­dio 3 has named its lat­est batch of New Gen­er­a­tion Artists. The scheme, which since 1999 has re­cruited six or seven peo­ple a year, gives bril­liant young mu­si­cians the op­por­tu­nity to per­form and broad­cast on high-pro­file stages over a two-year pe­riod. This year’s re­cruits are vi­o­lin­ist Alek­sey Seme­nenko, mezzo Ca­tri­ona Mori­son, pi­anist Mariam Bat­sashvili, jazz bassist Misha Mullov-ab­bado, Qu­atuor Arod, trum­peter Simon Hofele and gui­tarist Thibaut Gar­cia. A cou­ple of the names may be fa­mil­iar: Mori­son won this year’s BBC Cardiff Singer of the World and Mullov-ab­bado is the son of vi­o­lin­ist Vik­to­ria Mullova and con­duc­tor Clau­dio Ab­bado.
