Kathryn is thrilled to have been selected as a BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist for 2015-2017.
“The New Generation Artist Scheme was launched in 1999 and is intended to support young musicians who are embarking on an international career to reach the next stage of their development, by offering them performance and broadcast opportunities.
Every autumn six or seven artists or groups who are on the threshold of an international career are invited to join the scheme, which offers them unique opportunities to develop their talents. These include concerts in London and around the UK, appearances and recordings with the BBC performing groups, studio recordings for Radio 3, and, last but not least, the possibility of appearing at the BBC Proms.
As part of the scheme Radio 3 has also collaborated with several record companies, including nine co-produced CDs in the EMI Debut series, three of which won Gramophone Awards for the best Debut CD of the year. There have also been co-productions with Harmonia Mundi, BIS, Sony Classical and Signum among others, while a number of New Generation Artists have also featured on BBC Music Magazine cover CDs.
The New Generation Artists come from a wide field, and provide a representative cross-section of the most exciting British and international young artists. They are truly the stars of tomorrow.”
