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

This week on Blue Tunes...

Amsterdam born, Swiss based violinist Gwendolyn Masin first came to the attention of the Irish public with a performance on the Late Late Show when she was eleven in 1988.  Today she enjoys a busy international career as a performer and a teacher, she has continued her connections with Ireland through regular appearances and a dedication to Irish contemporary composers such as John Buckley, Eric Sweeney and Raymond Deane. Her latest CD "Origin" is a tour de force of string ensemble performances - most of which were arranged by Raymond Deane. Dances by De Falla, Bartok and others pay tribute to her multicultural background. Hear it all week on Blue.
