Nightly, 10pm - 1am

The Blue of the Night with Carl Corcoran Thursday 9 January 2014

This Week on Blue....

This week Carl will be exploring the many musical guises of violinist Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh. Caoimhin makes music on a 10-string fiddle called the hardanger d'amore and travels the world as a solo musician, in duos with Dan Trueman, Mick O'Brien and Brendan Begley, and as a member of The Gloaming and This is How we Fly.  We'll hear some of his recordings and we'll have a special live performance when he joins Carl for music and chat on Wednesday for a Blue Room Session.

Tuesday's Blue - Carl takes night off for a special Boadcast....

We mark Art’s Birthday with a special Nova programme on January 17th. The celebration takes the form of a live exchange of sound and radio art pieces via satellite between various radio stations. Some twenty networks will participate. Bernard Clarke with the help of his guests, the composers Jurgen Simpson and Vicky Langan will present a selection of radio art pieces from participating stations while RTÉ lyric fm will offer its own gift to its neighbours in the form of a specially commissioned work Onironautica by La Cosa Preziosa.

The Blue of the Night with Carl Corcoran

Though Alexander Scriabin died at the age of 43, he wrote much of the 20th century's finest music for piano. Hear a selection of his preludes and études each night this week.

LOUIS REMEMBERED

It's been a sad year for the music world with the loss of many iconic figures. One of our own legends, jazz guitarist Louis Stewart left us earlier this year. Louis' musical legacy is recognised and lauded in the international jazz world. At home in Ireland, where he chose to base himself even at the peak of his international fame, he became a friend and mentor to many in a burgeoning jazz community. His loss is immense. In March 2014, Louis was the featured artist on The Blue of the Night with Carl Corcoran. This special programme features many of Louis' wonderful performances and his chat with Carl, recalling his early days and the highlights of his international career.
