In 1999, BBC Radio 3 launched its New Generation Artists scheme, with the aim of nurturing some of the world’s most talented young musicians at the beginning of their international careers through prestigious broadcasting and concert-giving opportunities. 20 years on, the scheme boasts well over a hundred alumni, including the Belcea String Quartet, Alice Coote, Janine Jansen, Mahan Esfahani and Igor Levit.

This celebration invites a host of former members of the scheme back for a wide-ranging feast of chamber music.
