BBC Radio 3 has announced the players chosen for its New
Generation Artists scheme this year. Violinist Elena Urioste,
cellist Leonard Elschenbroich, and the Apollon Musagète Quartet
from Poland will receive opportunities to develop live and recorded
performances for broadcast over the next two years.
Urioste, a US-born, Mexican–Basque violinist, has won first prizes in the Sphinx and Sion–Valais Violin competitions, both in 2007. She was interviewed in the November 2011 issue of The Strad. Elschenbroich, a member of the Sitkovetsky Piano Trio, received a Borletti–Buitoni Trust award in 2008. The Apollon Musagète Quartet won first prize in the 2008 ARD International Music Competition and was selected by the Wiener Konzerthaus and Musikverein for the ECHO Rising Stars programme in 2010–11. The quartet has run its own festival in Goslar, Germany, since 2010.
Each autumn for the past 14 years, six or seven artists have been invited to participate in the New Generation Artists scheme. Violinist Lisa Batiashvili, cellists Natalie Clein and Alban Gerhardt, and the Belcea Quartet were among the inaugural crop of musicians to benefit from the programme.
